This book examines the Brazil-EU Strategic Partnership and is the result of a project that ‘twinned’ five sets of eminent Brazilian and European scholars to investigate themes of undoubted strategic significance: macroeconomics, trade policy, climate change, foreign policy and continental regionalism. Results show that while the two parties cannot claim to determine global policies, they can develop a specialist niche in global affairs, working together in the avant-garde of those searching for workable global solutions, seeking to bridge the frequent wide differences between the West and the rest, or North and South, or old powers and new ones.

The book is edited by Michael Emerson, Associate Senior Research Fellow at CEPS and Renato Flores, Professor at the Graduate School of Economics/EPGE and Head of the International Intelligence Unit at Getulio Vargas Foundation, Rio de Janeiro.

Other authors are: Cinzia Alcidi, Monica Alessi, Christian Egenhofer, Lucas Ferraz, Alessandro Giovannini, Giovanni Grevi, Suzanne Gratius, Daniel Gros, Emerson Marçal, Patrick Messerlin, Miriam Gomes Saraiva, Vera Thorstensen, Alfredo Valladao, Alcides Costa Vaz & Eduardo Viola.
