This CEBRI Dossiê Special Edition is a direct product of the International Conference convened by the Brazilian Center for International Relations (CEBRI) and the Clingendael Institute. The Conference took place in Brasilia, Brazil on the 29th May 2012. The Conference counted with both Brazilian and Dutch experts from different backgrounds such as military, academia UN oficials, policymakers, civil society and other relevant players in the field of international security. In that fashion, most of the papers published here are a refection to the talks carried out in the Conference.

The debate on New Approaches to International Security focus mainly in the Brazilian and Dutch experience and how both countries could develop a deeper partnership in dealing with future threats. Both Brazil and the Netherlands have played during the past years an active role in humanitarian relief operations and peace keeping and stabilization operations, under the auspices of the United Nations, in the case of the Netherlands also within NATO and the EU. Both countries’ involvement corroborates their willingness to support efforts to maintain and restore peace and order in conflict areas, to contribute to stabilization and reconstruction and more in general to stimulate economic and political development. For both Brazil and the Netherlands the nexus between development and long-term security is in particular a guiding theme.
