At the beginning of the twenty-first century, Brazil was able to raise its profile in terms of global foreign-policy as it became known with Russia, China, and India as one of the BRIC emerging-market countries that preoccupy the G-8 nations' foreign ministries. Brazil has played no small part in the evolution of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and other primary international institutions, and the country also provides the Americas with political, economic, and physical security. Several outside South America find it unlikely that Brazil is recognized as a sophisticated player in the international stage as it has yet to receive significant attention from international affairs analysts, and because of the manner in which Brazil proceeds with its international agenda. As the country's strategy involves utilizing indirect and apolitical programs that integrate its various global leadership ambitions, this book attempts to look into the ambitions and actions of Brazil between 1992 and 2002 to provide more information regarding Brazilian foreign policy and its initiatives.
