LAC Focus: The Outlook for Brazil-US Relations

Rex W. Tillerson, the Trump Administration’s recently confirmed Secretary of State, is charged with carrying out a foreign policy whose defining principle of “America First” has rattled rivals and allies alike. Despite his lack of diplomatic experience, a look at Tillerson’s personal history can shed light on how he might handle the challenge. Brazil, although unlikely to feature high on the American agenda, is looking north as it seeks to revive its struggling economy – it will do its best to keep relations normal and attract new investments. Although market access may be limited if protectionist measures are enacted, an inward-looking America also presents Brazil with new opportunities. Two of Brasilia’s bargaining chips – an opening of the offshore oil sector and the development of a strategically located satellite launch base – could have significant economic and geopolitical implications.

Call for Papers: Havana Workshop

The Global South Caucus of the International Studies Association (GSCIS) is dedicated to expanding the theoretical and practical horizons of the discipline of International Relations (IR), which has been largely shaped by Western and global northern experiences. It is now fairly well recognized that the study of IR has tended to devalue the ideas and experiences of global south countries and peoples. To change this, in the interest of developing a truly global IR, the GSCIS has been championing, as a first step, the exploration, discussion, debate, and formulation of local and regional narratives and practices of the south – Africa, Asia, and Latin America/Caribbean. This workshop follows up on larger conferences we have held in Menton (2012) and Singapore (2015) as well as panels we have sponsored at the International Studies Association’s annual convention since 2012, and a workshop co-sponsored with the Philippine International Studies Organization’s workshop in March 2017.

The Havana workshop, occurring in a country which has for decades promulgated alternative approaches both domestically and internationally, will both explore southern perspectives as well as assess the relationship between these and “mainstream” IR. Within these parameters, the workshop is open to all who wish to explore theoretical, methodological, empirical, and practical/policy-oriented research in IR.

Gonzalo Paz – Sobre Trump y Washington

Mientras el mundo trata de seguir y comprender las implicaciones de los trepidantes primeros días de la sorpresiva y sorprendente presidencia de Donald Trump, hay un enfrentamiento sordo entre el nuevo presidente y Washington. Trump logró manipular electoralmente a su favor la extendida percepción (justa o injusta) de Washington como un lugar de corrupción, donde los lobbies manejan la política y donde la falta de entendimiento en el Congreso entre republicanos y demócratas o entre el Congreso y la Casa Blanca bloquean la adopción de políticas públicas que mejoren la vida de los ciudadanos.
