From the 21st of November to the 9th of December, FGV Projetos organized five talks and events related to the launching of the book “Comentários à Constituição do Brasil” (Comments on the Constitutions of Brazil), produced by Gilmar Mendes, Minister of the Federal Supreme Court; José Gomes Canotilho, Chairman of the Law School of the University of Coimbra; Ingo Wolfgang Sarlet, full professor at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul; and Lenio Luiz Streck, State Attorney for the State of Rio Grande do Sul. The events were held in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Brasília and Porto Alegre.

“Comentários à Constituição do Brasil” is an unprecedented initiative in Brazilian juridical literature. Begun five years ago, the publication is designed to present detailed comments on the Constitution of 1988, taking into account the aspects that defined the commitments that shape our society; in addition, it provides a solid reference for those in need of a broader understanding of the current text of the Constitution. The book contains over 300 articles written by a team of 132 authors.
