ABSTRACT
The paper presents a series of notes for a research agenda about democracy consolidation in Brazil, guided by the following questions: the democratic system where live has it consolidation threatened by current institutional discrediting on its representation, functioning and performance? We run the risk of perpetuating, or even worsening, of the conditions of a political democracy less effective in guaranteeing the civil rights of the population’s majority? These dilemmas relate to social, institutional and cultural basic variables to the legitimacy of the representative democratic regime. The analysis was focused on the constraints to the current democratic regime that have their roots in the transition process and the political tradition of the country, where features the great social inequality that is still in force and the increasing violence, which cause serious political effects like as shrinkage of the policy community and the difficulty of maintenance the democratic rule of law.
