Past Event

Brazil and the Shaping of a Cooperative Multipolar Order

Brazil boasts the world’s seventh-largest economy and fifth-largest population, and, with Japan, has been elected to the U.N. Security Council more times than any other U.N. member state. As Brazil grows, it seeks to influence the international order, encouraging what it sees as more inclusive forms of governance.

On February 9, the Project on International Order and Strategy and the Latin America Initiative hosted a discussion with Ambassador Antonio de Aguiar Patriota, permanent representative of Brazil to the United Nations. Patriota, who previously served as the Brazilian foreign minister, discussed the ways in which Brazil seeks to shape the international order, and lay out the country’s vision for a more cooperative multipolar system.
