Pedro Arcain Riccetto, Project Associate and Postdoctoral Fellow at the People in Government Lab, has had his research on judicial diversity featured on the front page of Folha de São Paulo (the largest newspaper in Brazil) and in other newspapers such as Valor Econômico, GloboCorreio Braziliense, Istoé DinheiroGZH Política, etc., as well as on Conjur and Jota, the two largest legal newspapers in the country.

Pedro also presented this research in a press conference broadcasted on national TV and radio. As a result, Brazil’s Association of Federal Judges (AJUFE) has formally requested the creation of a committee to look further at the findings and present policy recommendations to improve diversity in the Brazilian Judiciary.
