Supreme Court welcomes Mercosul judges and public servants in exchange

The opening of this edition took place at 2pm in the Second Chamber and was attended by the director-general, Amarildo Vieira, and the chief advisor for international affairs, Ingrid Stein. The judicial secretary, Dennys Albuquerque, held a talk on “Brazilian federalism after the 1988 Constitution”, and the Citizen Ombudsman’s head, Marcos Alegre, explained the work developed in that department.


On November the 21st 2008, representatives of Mercosul’s lower and Supreme Courts and that of Associated States signed an agreement in order to promote a cooperation and exchange program for judges and civil servants.

From 2009 to 2015, the Supreme Court has received 70 people, among them four judges from Bolivia, eight from Chile, two from Ecuador, six from Paraguay, one from Peru and ten from Uruguay, in addition to three Bolivian civil servants, 27 Chileans, three Peruvians and six Uruguayans. The growing presence of high authorities from neighboring countries proves the success of the exchange initiative.
