Abstract

The role of emerging powers in various external contexts has been responsible for significant changes in the economic, political and security multilateral agendas. Although the label of emerging countries have showed up from economic performance indicators, it has served to countries committed to expand its influence in policy and global security issues. Thus there is a reconfiguration of the "emerging economies" label to the "emerging powers" label. Along with other emerging countries, Brazil has sought to act as a leading force in this multipolar world, anchoring in multilateral strategies. The search seems to be the development of autonomous capabilities and international recognition, in which he observed a gradual, messy and uneven process of diffusion of international power. Brazil, along with his counterparts from BRICS and IBSA seeks to show itself as a new source of pressures, opinions and resources, in order to broaden the scope of their responsibilities and commitments. In view of this general reference of discussions, the researcher Monica Seabra Ellen Hirst will participate in the development of two research projects "The emerging Brazil and the challenges of global governance: the liberal peace in question" and "Cooperation between Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay in Combating Transnational Organized Crime", as well as in an extension project "Tutorial Education Program - Human rights, Security and International Relations: domestic and International Aspects". The activities planned for the visiting researcher are: - Meetings to assist in the development of the research projects: "Cooperation between Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay to combat Transnational Crime" and "The emerging Brazil and the challenges of global governance: the liberal peace in question."- Lecture on "Brazil and the emerging challenges of global governance in the area of international security" in incT-INEU (FAPESP - CNPq) and in the PUC-SP International Relations undergraduate course.- Workshop in the Graduate Program in International Relations UNESP, UNICAMP and PUC-SP and in the International Relations Tutorial Education Program of PUC-SP.- Participation in the graduate course "International Security Issues".
