The research presented here aims to analyze the U.S. foreign policy for South America, in general, and Brazil and Argentina in specific. The focus is on the first fifteen years of the 21st century and on themes of international security. We hypothesize that the 'global war on terror' did not mean U.S. negligence towards South America. Even though the Middle East was the priority, the diplomatic and military bureaucracy kept working to maintain U.S. hegemony in the hemisphere. The reformulation of the Inter-American Defense System, with a greater emphasis on transnational threats, also mattered as a way of promoting U.S. security view to Latin American countries. This research is central to the Ph.D. thesis project entitled "Argentina, Brazil and the United States: autonomy and alignment in international security" within which this project is embedded. During the stay in the U.S., I will make interviews, document analysis, visit think tanks and advance on the bibliographical research to understand the U.S. behavior in its relations with Brazil and Argentina.
