CEBRI Dossiers

Dossier #5

We are pleased to launch the fifth edition of CEBRI Dossier. It contains an analysis of Brazil's request for accession to the OECD, an evaluation of the Mercosur-European Union Agreement, and reflections on nationalism in Europe and on Germany's role in the face of transformations on the continent. There is also an important question about the current loss of power on the part of the USA, an overview of the Russian view on its relations with Latin America and Brazil and an interview with one of the greatest authorities on environmental issues in Brazil: Izabella Teixeira.

The texts deal with topics of wide debate today and how a they can affect Brazil, or are seen from here. We hope that they generate reflection and knowledge and we emphasize that it is of utmost importance to us to stimulate debate, meaning that comments, criticisms and suggestions about the dossier in general or some article in particular, are very welcome.
