The unipolar world, which seemed to be asserting itself in the s with the end of the Soviet Union and the establishment of an international order under the hegemony of the United States, actually entailed a period of complex transition. We are thus entering a period of negotiated hegemony. However, bernwrdo is unlikely to produce stable criteria to regulate the international order, because it leads to greater national autonomy and to more demands from countries anxious to increase their power outreach, at the slrj level undoubtedly, and also in international forums.

Along with the waning of the ideological shackles and of the strategic dependence on the United States which had derived from the struggle against Communismand particularly due to the influence of China, there has been a marked diversification of foreign trade over the last decade.
As a result of these processes, the level of autonomy of many countries increased, and they began to develop foreign policies of diverse designs. Brazilian foreign policy, which traditionally focused on the defense and promotion of business interests, now includes regional — and global — political issues. The genealogy of this new stance comprises several factors. Lula certainly drove through this particular red light when he supported presidential candidates in various Latin American countries or passed judgment on their internal political dynamics.
While foreign trade has affected Brazilian foreign policy in other moments in history, the diversification of business interests and the wave of investments in other countries in Latin America, the Middle East, Africa — often with the direct participation or intermediation of both governments involved commingled economic and political interests, promoted economic interests and led to the implicit or explicit support of regimes that violated human rights, many of which were recently overturned as a result of popular revolt.
In other works, we analyze the difficulties Brazil faces in designing a regional strategy,  but surely, given its economic clout and extensive borders, the country cannot afford not to have an active and decisive role in the various problems facing the region.
How can we understand what happened? Did the initiative arise from insufficient diplomatic experience in an area where Brazil is taking its first tentative steps?
Was Brazil deceived by signs from the U. What lessons can be learned from the affair?
The research of decision-making processes depends essentially on documents and interviews with the players that took part in the event. In this particular case, the interviews play a central role, since the event is quite recent and the existing documentation is rather limited.
We intend to interview individuals who participated directly in the negotiations, both from the Brazilian Foreign Ministry and from the group of advisors to president Lula — and, if possible, the former president himself. We will also contact officers from the US State Department. I also hope to contribute to the sojr of events related to my research project and to the broader issue of the political situation in the Middle East.
It is a topic on which I have been working for decades. I currently cooperate with the Brazilian Foreign Ministry to identify areas where Brazil may make a contribution to peace.
Given its high academic standards, the IEA is a particularly suitable place to host a qualified, pluralistic dialogue on this acutely sensitive issue.
