Emerging Powers and International Institutions Meeting Series

Director: Stewart M. Patrick, Senior Fellow and Director of the International Institutions and Global Governance Program
November 1, 2009 - June 25, 2013

Prospects for effective multilateral cooperation on global and transnational problems in the twenty-first century reflect the distinct national interests and world order visions of the great powers. But the identity and number of the world's leading states is changing, creating new challenges and opportunities for global governance. The world order that ultimately results from this transition period will reflect bargaining and negotiations between established powers—including the United States, European Union, and Japan—and emerging ones—most notably China, India, and Brazil. To better understand the priorities of today's emerging powers, and their potential contribution to resolving global challenges, the International Institutions and Global Governance (IIGG) program of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) held meetings in Rio de Janeiro, Beijing, New Delhi, Berlin, and Jakarta.

Rising Brazil: Implications for World Order and International Institutions

Director: Stewart M. Patrick, Senior Fellow and Director of the International Institutions and Global Governance Program
December 9, 2009—December 10, 2009

An essential starting point for assessing prospects for mutual accommodation between established and rising powers is a clear understanding of the grand strategies and priorities for global institutional reform of the world's emerging nations. The workshop was intended to shed light on how a rising Brazil conceives of the main challenges of world order; of the institutional requirements for collective security, prosperity, and stability; and of their country's place within the emerging configuration of global power and interest. These findings will inform recommendations on the range of possible Brazilian and U.S. policy options and strategies for global institutional reform.
