The Brazilian Center for International Relations (CEBRI), in partnership with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS), the Institute of International Relations and the Analysis Group of the International Conjuncture at the University of São Paulo, held on September 5 the Roundtable event "Ten Foreign Policy Challenges: Strategic Priorities until 2018".
The initiative is part of the activities of CEBRI’s Thematic Program on International Relations and Foreign Policy, which has been devoted to think about the main challenges that Brazil needs to face to ensure an international action in accordance with its interests and relevance. Under the coordination of CEBRI Senior Fellow Matias Spektor, specialists were selected to elaborate ten papers about many themes of the international agenda, seeking to contribute to the construction of a positive Brazilian foreign policy agenda. The project, funded by KAS, aims to promote reflection and dialogue with public and private actors and to offer conditions for the Brazilian society to choose appropriate ways for political, economic and social development.
Rafael Benke, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, represented CEBRI at the meeting. Representing KAS was Jan Woishnik, Representative of the Foundation in Brazil; representing the IRI/USP, Amâncio de Oliveira, Vice-Chairman of IRI/USP and representing the GACINT/USP, Ricardo Sennes, General Coordinator of the Group and CEBRI Senior Fellow, and Alberto Pfeifer, Assistant Coordinator of the Group.
