Abstract:

Source: BMI things are moving in this direction, we remain highly cautious. One commonly cited sign of the momentum shifting in favour of greater political participation was the Decreto-Lei -/--, a law that established a framework for administrative decentralisation. ...Although currently small in scale and without any political affiliation, over a longer time frame such protests have the potential to grow in scale and pose significant threats to stability.

Long-term political outlook path to political inclusion uncertain and slow
