Brazilian Foreign Policy after the Cold War

Regionalism plays no small part in stabilizing aspects of economics, politics, and security. Through this, shared interests and ideas would be furthered and used to build mutual confidence to advocate cooperation and eradicate armed conflict in diplomacy. This chapter focuses on how Itamaraty attempted to lead the growth of security structures in South America that would prove to be sustainable so that the necessary conditions for regional integration that would further Brazil's international strategy would be established and satisfied. To a certain degree, Itamaraty's capacity to lead the regional projects of the continent depends on the country's ability to assure its partner states with a particular level of security. While the inability to exert force for defending the continent from external raids poses a problem, addressing this would require looking into an application of Golbery do Couto e Silva's geopolitical strategy.

Keywords:   Golbery do Couto e Silva, geopolitical strategy, Itamaraty, regional integration, security, external raids, armed conflict, cooperation, diplomacy, regionalism
