    Democracy in Brazil: The Evolving Role of the Country's Supreme Court
    in Boston College International and Comparative Law Review , volume 40, issue 2 ,  2017 ,  245-259
    The objective of this paper is to analyze the functions of the Brazilian Supreme Court and the need to attribute to a single specific entity the roles of guardian of the constitution, court of the federation, and moderator of political and social conflicts. It is also important to stress the relevance of the Brazilian Supreme Court as a criminal court, overseeing inquiries and criminal suits involving federal authorities entitled to the prerogative of privileged jurisdiction.
