Resumo

The intellectual thrust of the project will be to assess and analyse Brazil's rise as one of the key towards the end of 2011. Brazil overtook the United Kingdom to become the world's sixth largest economy thereby underlining the claim to this title, alongside India, China and Russia. While the majority of academic and policy analyses accept Brazil's status as an emerging power in contemporary international relations, it is not sufficiently clear what the actual impact of Brazil's allegedly growing influence will be in shaping the world order. The so-called 'emerging powers' have distinguished themselves from other states by the expressed desire to intervene more directly in international politics through bilateral, regional, multilateral and 'soft power' strategies. Included in the latter is the showcasing of Brazil through the hosting of major global events such as the Rio+20 Sustainable Development Conference (2012), the Football World Cup (2014) and the Summer Olympics (2016). In addition, Brazil has tried to frame the structure of dialogue and shape international negotiation processes in a number of areas of international relations, in order to make up for its relatively limited political, economic and military resources compared to dominant players in those negotiations such as the. United States. While Brazil's 'emerging power' has been noted by many, the more important question as to what extent Brazil has provided political and normative leadership in accordance with its assigned status-has yet to be fully answered. The researchers on this project will go some way to rectify this. (AU)
