In the last 30 years or so, after the end of military rule, Brazil has increasingly redefined both its internal arrangements and procedures and its own international standing and activities in many subjects and arenas related to traditional security-related issues. Brazil has become a full member of the Non-Proliferation Treaty — NPT, and has been very active there, like in the Review Conference of 2000, when the New Agenda Coalition submitted and approved the “13 Practical Steps on Nonproliferation and Disarmament”; Brazil also came to participate in the Nuclear Suppliers Group — NSG; but it strongly resists to sign an agreement based on the Model Additional Protocol with the International Atomic Energy Agency — IAEA, and is also skeptical of the “State-Level Approach”.
To reflect on the new role Brazil has taken on the international stage RBPI (Revista Brasileira de Política Internacional) is preparing a special issue on Brazil’s domestic and international changes concerning defense and traditional security issues since redemocratization.
All submissions should be original and unpublished and they must be written in English. The deadline for submissions is May 30th 2017.
