International Seminar - Brazil and the Cold War in Latin America: New Sources and Interpretations
FGV - Praia de Botafogo, 190, Rio de Janeiro - 27/09/2010 (All day) - 28/09/2010 (All day)

Seminar organized by the Center for International Relations at FGV and IDEAS – London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) - 27-28 September 2010

The main goal of the conference was to promote the debate about the Cold War in Brazil and in Latin America, and with that purpose, the organization presented researches that used new primary sources, such as recently opened files or others that have not yet been fully explored, testimonies from key actors in that period and oral history testimonies. Should the Cold War in Latin America be seen as regional example of a global phenomenon, or was it a unique event with its own characteristics? How did the populations in the different countries of the region conceived the Cold War and its end? How was the Cold War "internalized" in the countries of the region? What was the impact of the Cold War for the concept of “Latin America” and the international relations in the region? How did local or national events influenced the global trajectory of the Cold Wat?

With those questions in mind, seeing the Brazilian case as particularly intriguing, the Latin America Program at LSE IDEAS and the Center for International Relations at FGV sponsored this international conference in Rio de Janeiro, between 27-28 September 2010. Part of the funding for this initiative came from the generous contribution of the British Academy.
