Acting Globally: Memoirs of Brazil’s Assertive Foreign Policy

Lecture | April 19 | 4-5:30 p.m. | Stephens Hall, Geballe Room, 220 Stephens Hall

 Ambassador Celso Amorim

 Center for Latin American Studies

Between 2003 and 2010, Brazil practiced a new assertive foreign policy and extended its diplomatic reach on the global stage. Celso Amorim was at the forefront of this process. In this talk, Amorim will discuss his new book, Acting Globally: Memoirs of Brazil’s Assertive Foreign Policy. Acting Globally lays out Brazil’s approaches to three major international situations: the Iranian nuclear issue, diplomatic efforts in relation to the Middle East, and the Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations.

Celso Amorim is Brazil’s longest-serving foreign minister (1993-1994; 2003-2010). He was also Minister of Defense from 2011 to 2014. In 2009, Foreign Policy magazine referred to him as the “world’s best foreign minister.”
