Research Project

Brazil's Rise to the Global Stage (BRAGS)

2014 - 2017 (Completed) Project number: 237001

BRAGS seeks to understand the drivers behind Brazilian humanitarian action and participation in peacekeeping and peacebuilding activities.

By making this an empirical question, BRAGS avoids analyzing Brazil in terms of the binary of "challenger" or "assimilator" to the international order. Beyond its immediate relevance to humanitarianism and peacekeeping, the project addresses the role of rising powers in global governance, and the status component of humanitarian engagements. NUPI’s involvement in the project through Benjamin de Carvalho addresses the key drivers behind Brazil's humanitarian policy, and what consequences this engagement has for Brazil's international status.
