This lecture will focus on Brazil, the so called “good BRIC.” It will cover that nation’s 25 years of steady democracy, its economic boom, and its ambitious role in the international arena. Professor Hochstetler will illuminate the interests that drive Brazil’s unpredictable participation in global economic relations and examine the degree to which Brazil’s interests align with those of the United States.
Kathryn Hochstetler is the GIGI Chair of Governance in the Americas at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, University of Waterloo, Canada. She completed her doctoral work at the University of Minnesota and has held several academic positions including a year at Oxford University. Her most recent book, Greening Brazil: Environmental Activism in State and Society (Duke University Press, 2007), was written in collaboration with Margaret Keck
