Where next for Brazil in a changing world?

The new Brazilian presidential administration takes office in January, inheriting a legacy of bold international activism and inclusive growth. While Brazil’s successes over the last decade have been enormous, substantial challenges remain for the new government, from expanding economic growth to tackling poverty and crime.

Effective international engagement can play a key role in addressing these domestic issues and ensure the country sustains its influential position in the world. Yet, as the global and domestic become more intertwined and the centres of power shift rapidly, navigating the international landscape will be an increasingly complex task. In this context, what foreign policy priorities are likely to emerge under President Dilma Rousseff?

Confirmed speakers:
Ambassador Roberto Jaguaribe, Brazilian ambassador to the United Kingdom

Professor Andrew Hurrell, Montague Burton Professor of International Relations, Oxford University

Dr Oscar Guardiola-Rivera, Senior Lecturer in Law and International Affairs, Birkbeck University, and author of “What if Latin America ruled the World?”

Chair: Alistair Burnett, Editor of The World Tonight, BBC News

This seminar presents a unique opportunity to interact with a wide range of policymakers, academics and media commentators not only on the next steps of the Brazilian government but also on changing international policy scenarios.

This seminar is part of the Foresight project, organised by the Alfred Herrhausen Society, in partnership with Policy Network.
