Resumen

DOMINGUEZ AVILA, Carlos Federico. Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment, inter-institutional accountability, and the quality of democracy in Brazil. Polis [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.48, pp.223-244. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682017000300223.

The paper explores the Brazilian political crisis that forced the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff, in 2016. The article has been prepared in the perspectives of the studies on quality of democracy, in general, and the inter-institutional accountability, in particular. The approach to the inter-institutional accountability usually refers to the relations between Executive, Legislative and Judicial branch, the control agencies, the press/journalism and civil society contributions, and the political-administrative decentralization processes. In this context, we establish that the Rousseff’s impeachment was an abuse and excess of certain agents, political and juridical actors against the current executive.
