Is there a violation of the right to science – scientific freedom – under Bolsonaro’s government?

Internal and external challenges are leading to a growing distrust in democracy, giving room to regimes pushed by various populists, which fulfil in some scale the characteristics of illiberal democracies: constraints on rights, press control, disregard of minorities, concentration of power in the Executive, elimination of political opponents and censorship upon academic and scientific activities.
Reckoning on the right to science, recognized in Article 15 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the paper proposes do discuss Brazilian situation under Bolsonaro’s government; is it possible to cogitate of a violation of scientific (and academic) freedom? Which are the potential deleterious effects of such a violation, specially against democracy? Which would be the possible legal remedies to stop such a violation?
