Message from Prof. Roberto Ellery Jr., Director of FACE

Prof. Roberto Ellery Jr., Director of FACE (Faculdade de Economia, Administração e Contabilidade) was out of town last Wednesday but asked me to make public his support to the EPRG. Please read below the message he asked prof. José Carneiro da Cunha Oliveira Neto, Deputy-Director of FACE to read during the group release ceremony.

Prezados,

O lançamento deste “Economics and Politics Research Group” é um momento de grande importância para FACE. Ao congregar pesquisadores de destaque nacional e internacional nas áreas de economia e ciências políticas este grupo aponta na direção do futuro que queremos para FACE e, ouso dizer, para UnB. Mas além de congregar pesquisadores de áreas distintas o grupo se dedica a um tema central de pesquisa em ciências sociais, entender o funcionamento das políticas públicas, como estas afetam as vidas das pessoas e quais os incentivos envolvidos neste processo é tarefa fundamental para a elaboração e execução destas políticas tão importantes para nosso país. Lamento sinceramente não estar presente, no momento estou participando do VI Encontro CAEN-EPGE de Políticas Públicas e Crescimento Econômico, aliás gostaria de ver representantes deste grupo no próximo encontro. Desejo um excelente evento para os senhores e senhoras participantes e me coloco à disposição para colaborar com o que estiver a meu alcance para o sucesso do grupo. Parabéns.

Roberto Ellery Jr,, Diretor da FACE.
