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.
