A subject called "the coup of 2016 and the future of democracy in Brazil", offered by the undergraduate political science course of UnB (University of Brasilia), triggered off a reaction from the Ministry of Education, which requested, on Thursday (22), an "administrative misconduct" investigation related to the course's creators.

The course is scheduled to start on March 5, taught by professor Luis Felipe Miguel, full professor of the Political Science Institute, and one of its goals is "to understand the fragility elements of the Brazilian political system which allowed the democratic rupture in May and August 2016, resulting in the ousting of President Dilma Rousseff [PT] ".

The subject also intends to analyze "the agenda of setbacks regarding rights and restrictions on freedom" under Michel Temer's (MDB) administration.

The Ministry had previously issued a note accusing the course creators of "political and ideological proselytism by means of a public institution".
