WHY CEBRI

The Brazilian Center for International Relations (CEBRI) is an independent, nonprofit think tank that, since 1998, has dedicated itself to promoting policy-oriented discussions on agendas of national interest and Brazil's international engagement competitively and strategically. Based in Rio de Janeiro, CEBRI is recognized nationally and internationally as a platform to analyze, develop, and coordinate pragmatic and innovative solutions.

Besides individual members and diplomatic representatives from various countries, CEBRI's Advisory Board includes companies from the economy's leading sectors.
