Biography: Igor Pereira is a Ph.D. candidate at Rio de Janeiro State University, and an LL.M. candidate at UC Berkeley. He is writing a thesis on the intersection between women’s rights, public policy, and social marketing.

His thesis aims to explain the effectiveness of the criminal system and its human rights issues from a constitutional pragmatic perspective. From the study of trafficking in women for sexual exploitation, he wants to show how states can use preventive measures as a public policy strategy that could be more effective than traditional criminal sanctions.
