摘要Abstract

What are the ongoing strategies of Brazil to Asia, in special to China? How has Brazil been perceiving the most recent strategic challenges in the region? What are the perspectives to the next years?

I order to answer these questions, the seminar will start with a brief discussion on still existing mutual stereotypes and cultural differences, as a way to emphasize the potential of further approximation. In a second moment, there will a brief analysis of the current institutional crisis in Brazil and its impacts on the strategies developed to Asia, in special to China, in the areas of trade, cooperation and political alliance, including the BRICS. At last, the discussion will be oriented to the perception of Brazil and other South American countries about strategic economic and security issues in the region, and its potential impacts to the Western world.
