CONSUMER LAW PROJECT

Ensuring the population’s access to justice requires that the jurisdiction be directed to make decisions based on fairness and that they be rendered in a reasonable time. A great number of repetitive demands are presented to the Judiciary of Brazil, which generates a process overflow. There are more processes today than judges can appreciate. The focus of the research is to study alternative mechanisms of conflict resolution in litigation involving consumer relations with a focus on efficiency analysis. The issue of conflicts arising from consumer relations was chosen because they represent, quantitatively, one of the main issues that are brought to Brazilian magistrates.

PROJECT BIG DATA FOR URBAN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

The Project Big Data for Urban Sustainable Development is a replicable and scalable pilot project on big data governance in the cities of São Paulo (Brazil), Miraflores (Peru), Montevideo (Uruguai), Quito (Ecuador) and Xalapa (Mexico). The project will build the data governance fundamentals required for massive data analysis, test monitoring and forecasting systems such as mobility and climate change, and develop estimates of the results and return on investments made to transform cities into smart cities.

– are interested in spending 6 – 12 months working in the IDB project “Big Data for Urban Sustainable Development” in the field of climate protection and climate-related resource conservation within the participant cities;
– are developing research centered in solutions to climate change focused on local government and big data analytic;
– are familiar with data analytic in the public sector;
You will have the opportunity to have contact with ground team in five cities in Latina America and develop strategies and solutions for climate change using big data analytic;
We expect the fellow to develop innovative solutions to address climate change issues within local governments using big data analytic.
