The Brazil LAB congratulates the Mobility and Social Development Institute (Instituto Mobilidade e Desenvolvimento Social) for the inauguration of its headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. IMDS was founded by Arminio Fraga and Paulo Tafner to design, test, propose, and disseminate impactful public policies on social mobility and is directed by Tafner and Sérgio Guimarães Ferreira. The event took place on December 17.
