FUNAG publishes “Foreign Policy Journals no. 8”
The Alexandre de Gusmão Foundation (FUNAG) has published the 8th edition of the “Foreign Policy Journals” [Cadernos de Política Exterior], a journal edited by FUNAG’s Institute for Research on International Relations (IPRI). This edition includes ten articles – written by diplomats, academics and experts – on international relations and Brazilian foreign policy.
The journal begins with an article by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Ernesto Araújo, adapted from a lecture he gave during the opening of a seminar on globalism – an event conducted by FUNAG on June 10, 2019.
Next is a text by Ambassador Alberto da Costa e Silva, written for the celebrations of Africa Day, which took place on May 27, 2019, with an event conducted at Itamaraty.
Diplomat and historian Bruno Miranda Zétola reflects, in his article, on Itamaraty’s important role in the process of internationalization of the Brazilian language, culture, and creative economies.
The Journals also bring a text by Ambassador Carlos Márcio Cozendey, with a reflection on Brazil’s entrance into the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the reasons for the Brazilian interest in becoming a member of the Organization.
An essay by Counsellor Emerson Coraiola Yinde Kloss addresses the dealings between Brazil and the European Union in the preparation process for the 10th Ministerial Conference (MC10) of the World Trade Organization (WTO), conducted in Nairobi, in 2015.
With the backdrop of the strategic impact of artificial intelligence in international relations, Minister Eugênio Vargas Garcia analyzes the matter of lethal autonomous weapon systems (LAWS) and their implications.
In turn, Diplomat Michael Nunes Lawson investigates how the African continent, represented by the African Union, went from firm supporter to obstinate opposition of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Economist Renato Bauman writes about the bilateral economic relationship between Brazil and India, as well as possible strategies to deepen and strengthen it.
Diplomat Ricardo dos Santos Poletto reflects on the origins, the limitations and the contribution of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC), through a re-reading of its trajectory as a political institution necessary for dealing with emerging challenges in the global agenda.
Finally, the Journals include a text from Air Force Major Ricardo Henrique Correia dos Santos, which investigates the high-tech production in the aeronautical segment and its importance to the growth of national economy.
