Context Notes

Reordenamento Global, Crise do Multilateralismo e Implicações para o Brasil

Is multilateralism in crisis? This paper shows that multilateral agreements have historically served as strategic instruments for countries like Brazil. The core of multilateralism’s crisis of legitimacy stems from an inadequacy of the post-World War II liberal-western institutional framework in the face of new poles of power.

“The pandemic and the difficulty to produce global collective action to deal with the health crisis revealed a phenomenon that had been maturing in previous years, illustrated by the paralysis in decision-making in multilateral organizations,” authors Maria Regina Soares de Lima and Marianna Albuquerque point out.

Only available in Portuguese.
