The FGV School of Social Sciences (FGV CPDOC) traces its roots to the Center for Research and Documentation in Contemporary Brazilian History (CPDOC), an important research center focusing on the social sciences and history that was founded in 1973. It has been a pioneer in storing the private archives of public figures, which tell the political, economic, social and cultural history of Brazil, as well as the evolution of the country’s international relations. The school has also led the way in democratizing access to the content of its historical archives, which can be consulted free of charge via the internet.
