Lemann Dialogue

The Dialogue

The Lemann Dialogue is an annual conference on Brazil, collaboratively organized between four universities with endowments from the Lemann Foundation (Columbia, Harvard, Illinois, and Stanford). The founder of the Lemann Foundation is Jorge Paulo Lemann, noted Brazilian business leader and a generous benefactor of Harvard University.

The specific conference themes vary each year, but generally focus on contemporary social, economic, and political challenges in Brazil. Speakers at these conferences include faculty from the four collaborating institutions, as well as scholars, policymakers, and other experts from Brazil. The conference provides an excellent opportunity to showcase innovative research on Brazil, build connections between academic institutions, and connect leading academics and public policy experts.
