Brazil in Africa (since the dawn of a new millennium): a political economic assessment.
Brazil, the central focus of this study, has taken up a role as one of the interminably bourgeoning middle-power economies in the world. The country plays a major role in redefining the new role of emerging economies in a transformed global economic system. Furthermore, Brazil’s enthusiasm and rise in the globe has over the years been greatly swayed by compelling international as well as inland political and ideological nuances. As such, Brazil’s position on, and conduct in, the global governance terrain and, therefore, its foreign relations approach, is increasingly exhibiting an urgent need for academic inspection. More so, the study will attempt to offer an expanded descriptive account of the nexus between Brazil’s rise in the international system, as well as their growing footprint on the African continent. The study’s main diagnostic tool will be the critical theory of hegemony. In consequence, the Gramscian concept of consensual hegemony (which is directly correlated to the critical theory of hegemony) will be used to gauge Brazil’s international behaviour.
