Abstract


This article is the result of an investigation into the model of Regional Security
Complex (RSC model in South America, especially since the creation of the South
American Defense Council (SDC), within UNASUR - Union of South American
Nations. From a theoretical discussion on the Regional Security Complexes, it is
argued that the recent South American experience affirmed an “extra type” model,
since in its dynamics it is not identified a regional power that acts in a global level
despite Brazilian’s greater economic expression in regional and international arena.
