(p.158) 6 Continuity and Change during the First Lula Presidency
Brazilian Foreign Policy after the Cold War

Sean W. Burges

University Press of Florida

One of the author's fundamental arguments in analyzing how Brazil's foreign policy is associated with continuity and a slow pace of change is understanding Hernando Henrique Cardoso's presidency since he initiated the shift in orientation and in practice. Brazil adopted an active leadership through regionalism and consensual hegemony, although the extent of this new pattern is unexplored. This chapter looks into the notion of “continuities” and attempts to give an indication of how Cardoso's foreign policy trajectory persisted in Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva's first three years of presidency. Examining the transition from the Cardoso to the Lula administration allows the investigation of how foreign-policy strategies account for the shift in Itamaraty's style.

Keywords:   Lula, Cardoso, Itamaraty, continuities, change, consensual hegemony, regionalism, foreign policy
