Workshop II
Brazil as a Global Power: Ideas, Interests and Institutions
To be held in the Senior Common Room, Nuffield College
Friday 16th October 2009

This is the second workshop of a research programme on Rethinking Brazil in the Global Order, sponsored by the Brazilian Studies Programme and the Centre for International Studies at Oxford University and the Centro de Pesquisa e Documentação de História Contemporânea do Brasil and the Centro de Estudos sobre Relações Internacionais at the Fundação Getulio Vargas.

The first workshop -- on Brazil as a regional power in the Americas/Latin America/South America -- was held on 11th May 2009 at the FGV in Rio de Janeiro. The focus of the second workshop will be on the development of Brazilian interests, especially in relation to foreign economic policy and to climate change. It will be particularly concerned with the nature and evolution of Brazilian interests and the relationship between interests, ideas and institutions. What is the source of Brazilian interests in these areas? How have understandings of Brazilian interests changed (or not)? Why have they changed and what is the relative role of ideas, institutions and societal preferences? How have changed global constraints and structural economic developments fed through into interest change inside Brazil – or not? As was the case with the first workshop this will be based on precirculated memos of 4-6 pages, relatively brief introductory remarks by speakers, and roundtable discussion.
