Title U.S.-Brazil Cooperation: Working Together to Shape the Global Strategic Environment.
Publication Date Mar 2013
Media Count 52p
Personal Author R. P. Vergara
Abstract U.S.-Brazil relations have been characterized by friendship for the past two centuries. The two main powers in the Americas have had more similarities than differences in their history, geography, formation of people, beliefs and political values. The U.S. remains the only superpower, but has been facing many challenges in the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous international scenario. Brazil is consolidating its growth, leading the country to a more significant role on the world stage. This paper reviews the history of U.S.-Brazil cooperation, the major pillars of Brazilian foreign policy and the main aspects of U.S. foreign policy, and presents opportunities to enhance cooperation between the two countries. This paper concludes that the two countries can expand their historic cooperation by strengthening convergences and building complementary forms of activity to shape a more favorable global strategic environment.
