(p.17) 1 The Historical Path of Brazilian Foreign Policy
Brazilian Foreign Policy after the Cold War

Sean W. Burges

University Press of Florida

Since the Brazilian foreign policy makers are usually associated with how they take careful consideration of various aspects before taking action and how they exhibit a slow rate of change, the leadership project advanced by Itamaraty that entails an integrated South American political and economic space should not come as a surprise. Understanding the nature and evolution of policies adopted by Itamaraty during the Cardoso era would therefore require looking at the historical context. This chapter attempts to provide a description of the historical path of Brazil's foreign policy and how it went through and resolved a crisis after the Cold War in 1989, as well as how the emergence of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) furthered possible hemispheric relations realignment that may bring about Brazil's marginalization.

Keywords:   policy makers, NAFTA, foreign policy, hemispheric relations, marginalization, Cardoso, Itamaraty
