NEO-DEVELOPMENTALISM AND THE SEARCH OF A NEW INTERNATIONAL INSERTION
Keywords:Brazil's foreign policy, developmental strategies, international relations
AbstractBrazil has the fifth largest population and territory, and is on its way to also becoming the fifth largest GDP in the world. It then should – in an active, creative way – be a leading country in the reorganization of the world's power system. It was under this prism that a strongly diplomatic presidency led President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva to spend more than an eighth of his two mandates (2003-2010) abroad. This search to improve Brazil's position within international relations' hierarchy is linked to the strategies that occur in the national sphere. A discussion on the complex relationship between dependency and development resurfaced as an effort to formulate a neo-developmentalist socio-economic policy. This paper highlights countries' capacity to react and organize around the 2008 global financial crisis, which was a significant time. From that time on, the world began to see Brazil differently, and to recognize the country's strategic resources, such as the new oil reserves, its environmental richness, and a unique potential to expand food production.
