ABOUT ABEP-UK The ASSOCIATION OF BRAZILIAN POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS AND RESEARCHERS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM is a civil, nonprofit association based in London. ABEP was founded in 1980 by a group of Brazilian researchers and students living in London, as a result of the movement for the redemocratisation of Brazil. At that time, when internet was still taking its first steps and telephone was a luxury, the students met daily at the ULU University of London Union, to discuss Brazil and read the latest updates from Brazil through the Brazilian newspapers brought by VARIG especially for the association. Throughout these years, ABEP had adapted and evolved. Together with its formal representative roles, it became a virtual community of around 1500 subscribers and more than 300 registered members from all over the UK and from every area of knowledge. The conversation around the newspapers moved to our ABEP-L, a 15-year old electronic network by which students share their doubts and ideas, jobs are offered, movements are started and information about events and opportunities are distributed. Recently, social media has been also extensively used by our members and network.
