FRENCH GUIANA AND THE FALKLANDS: THE MILITARY PRESENCE OF FRANCE AND THE UNITED KINGDOM IN THE SOUTH ATLANTIC AND THE SOUTH AMERICAN CONTINENT

Marcos Valle Machado da Silva

Abstract


The issue of the Falklands catalyzes the attention of researchers in studies of the military presence of extraregional actors in South America. However, France, a state equally exogenous to the South American nations, is present in the region, keeping a colonial territory, where contingents and military installations are located, almost always ignored in regional security studies. In this context, this paper aims to highlight the military presence of France and the United Kingdom in America and South Atlantic, and to analyze the tensions arising from this presence in relation to the regional Brazilian view of defense.
