This master\'s thesis has studied the foreign policy formulation process of the Empire of Brazil for the River Plate basin region during the second half of the 1840s. This work\'s objectives were to understand the evolution of the relations between Brazil and the Platine nations and, through the study of the political debate that took place in the various institutions that participated in the foreign policy formulation process - Parliament, Council of State and the Minister of Foreign Affairs -, to understand the decision made by the Brazilian government to intervene in 1851 on the Guerra Grande, a conflict that started as a civil war in Uruguay but soon became a regional war. That intervention, known as the War against Oribe and Rosas, ended a decade of neutrality towards the conflict that was taking place in Argentina and Uruguay and marked the beginning of a new phase for the Imperial foreign policy. The hypothesis guiding this research is that the decision to intervene was the result of the interaction between the aforementioned institutions, according to the political dynamic of the constitutional monarchy, where various political actors debated, negotiated and confronted themselves.
