This project takes the survey research "Brazil, the Americas and the world: foreign policy and public opinion" to understand the public perception of a specific issue and relevant to our foreign policy: Brazil's participation in international organizations, in particular the Organization United Nations (UN). Not only the importance of organization for the international society but also the role that Brazil plays, as well as the demand for a permanent seat on the Security Council. It starts with the assumption that the broadening of the agenda of the country's foreign trade and the internationalization of Brazilian companies contributed to the increased interest by domestic international issues also foreign policy issues that until recently were far from the reality of citizens, have part of the debate as decisions in other arenas outside began to directly impact the national life. The questionnaire was given to the public (with a sample of 2000 people), aims to select the questions regarding the participation of Brazil in the UN and the Brazilian performance in the multilateral arena to understand the legitimacy of the claims of Brazilian diplomacy for a more prominent organization. The research will learn specific methods of analysis of survey and discuss in-depth the central theme of Brazilian foreign policy.(AU)
