Regional Reactions to the Rise of Brazil
Latin America and the Shifting Sands of Global Power, 2012
An Australian National Centre for Latin American Studies conference at The Australian National University
(12/13 September 2012)
Free entrance, no RSVP required.
Brazil has risen. Whether through discussions of the BRIC emerging market countries in the international media, the succession of Brazil cover stories in magazines such as The Economist and Newsweek, or the stream of official government visits from nearly all nations to Brasília, there is a public consciousness that Brazil has arrived on the global scene. But this is often where the discussion stops. Even within Brazil and Latin America precious little attention has been given directly to what the rise of Brazil means for the region and how countries within the Americas are responding to the increasingly muscular giant in their midst. The 2012 edition of the Australian National Centre for Latin American Studies annual conference Latin America and the Shifting Sands of Global Power will take up this theme by focusing on regional reactions to the rise of Brazil.

- Professor Sandra Borda (Universidad de los Andes, Colombia) on Colombia and regional security questions
- Dr. Sean Burges (Australian National University) on Brazil’s penetration of Latin America
- Associate Professor Miguel Carter (American University, USA) on the Paraguayan reaction
