We speak with Stephanie Reist about the search for Marielle Franco’s killers one year after her death. We also discuss the relationship between the state and organized crime in Brazil, and how political life has changed under the Bolsonaro regime. Stephanie Reist is a freelance writer and researcher based in Rio de Janeiro. She received her PhD in Latin American cultural studies from Duke University and is currently a postdoctoral researcher in education policy at the Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro, Multidisciplinary Institute.
