Course content

Today Brazil has a large and growing presence on the international scene, as a member of the BRICS group of emerging countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa). Brazil has further been a key player in international forums such as the Copenhagen Climate Conference in December 2009, as well as Group of 20 (G20). Therefore, it is common to refer to the country as a political and/or economic "global player". But what does it mean to be a “Global Player”? And how can we “measure” to which extent a country is (or is not) a “Global Player”? In this course we will examine different theories from political science and economics and apply them to case studies on Brazil. Some topics to be analyzed are the state’s own definition of its international role, the material and organizational resources it can rely on, concrete activities undertaken by the country, the recognition and acceptance of its leadership status by other actors/states, and its "real political influence".
