A “Brazilian way”? Brazil’s approach to peacebuilding
Drawing on interviews with Brazilian diplomats and official documents, this paper examines the context, key principles, and main mechanisms of Brazilian peacebuilding. It identifies major patterns and trends, including important challenges and contradictions. In particular, we examine whether there is a “Brazilian” approach to peacebuilding and how that approach differs from dominant or Western principles and practices.
