Brazil and its new economic partners: an empirical assessment of the applicable regulation to the case of Angola


This research project aims at understanding the role of law to the increase of economic relations between Brazil and Angola - one of the countries with which Brazil has increased most its trade and investment flows in the past ten years. In this regard, the regulatory tools considered are (i) international economic agreements signed by the two countries, (ii) domestic regulation promoting those relations, and (iii) contractual instruments, involving public and/or private actors. This broad regulatory framework - including national and international levels, public and private legal instruments - is closely related to the research approach. In addition to a thematic focus, considering a special topic (Brazil and Angola economic relations), this project intends to pursue qualitative research as method in the field of law. The employment of empirical techniques might help the continuous process of design and redesign of the field that the qualitative research suggests. This methodological choice empower the critical revision of concepts and categories of International Economic Law upon the example of economic relations between economies that are not central to the international system.
