Charting new directions: Brazil's role in a multi-polar world

It is clear that the pace and scale of Brazil’s recent development is a key contributor to the emergence of a new constellation of global power. Relatively unscathed by the recent financial crisis, Brazil has good reasons for optimism. It has combined economic growth with social inclusiveness, built strong ties with its neighbours and the wider world, and enjoys an extensive natural resource base.

However, moving forward, the country faces significant dilemmas and the decisions it makes will also impact other parts of the world. How to harness its natural resources in a way that generates employment and benefits its citizens? How to reduce inequality and the internal tensions that stem from it? And, in a rapidly changing world, how can it consolidate and advance its position on the international stage?

This Foresight publication analyses Brazil’s development, rise and role in the world by focusing on three core issues: sustainable growth; social cohesion; and the international emergence of Brazil.
