BRAZIL'S FOREIGN POLICY IN THE TIME OF THE BOLSONARO GOVERNMENT
Keywords:Brazilian foreign policy, Bolsonaro government, strategic environment, reactionary, democracy
This article produces a mapping on the main pillars of the Bolsonaro government's foreign policy in Brazil and represents a first search for rationality to understand the Bolsonaro government's foreign policy as part of the current power project in Brazil. To this end, the three pillars on which this policy is based are identified and briefly characterized (“ideological political core”, “liberal-conservative economic policy” and the “security and defense” complex). This triple support is evaluated from the domestic, international and regional levels. The analytical prism that guides this characterization assumes foreign policy as a public policy, which involves a wide range of actors and interests. Such an arc implies a cohabitation of cooperation and competition between the social, political and economic segments that nourish the Bolsonaro government's external agenda. Between conservative values and poor management in the pandemic, the non-existent priority space given to the relationship with the strategic environment is evident.
