Brazil and China economic transactions: the law and its empirical evidences

Abstract

This research proposal aims at understanding the role of law in the continuous increase of economic transactions between Brazil and China. China is the country with which Brazil has increased the most its trade and investment flow in recent years. Aiming at assessing the role of law, different regulatory levels will be considered, from international agreements to domestic rules and private arrangements. The coverage of domestic and international legal instruments, public and private ones, is about the same methodology adopted in the analysis of Brazil and Angola bilateral relations, in the last three years with the support from Fapesp (2014/25776-4). In addition to that, this project intends to feed a comparative database of bilateral relations of Brazil, and to sustain a mid-term theoretical analysis of Global South economic relations. The database has been built on the outputs of a qualitative research methodology, relying on the features of data storage and management of the software Atlas.ti©. The contextualization for new theoretical elaborations has been based on critical approaches to International Law.
