The fifth largest country in the world, Brazil covers nearly half of the landmass of South America. The country is one of the world’s largest democracies, and is among the foremost rising economic powers. Notably, the discovery of major offshore oil reserves could lead to its emergence as one of the top oil exporting nations. Perhaps the foremost human rights concerns in the country relate to the high level of violent crime and the abusive response of the justice system, including police brutality, poor conditions and the use of torture in detention centres.
