Brazil in conflict-affected states – implications for post-2015

This briefing explores Brazil’s role in conflict-affected states and its potential to contribute to peacebuilding, especially in relation to the post-2015 development framework. In an increasingly multipolar world, a growing number of actors are involved in shaping the global development agenda.

Countries such as China, India, Brazil, South Africa, and Turkey will be central to articulating a credible and effective new framework for development, including how to engage in conflict-affected states. Current consultations to set out the post-2015 framework must be informed by the perspectives and experiences of these ‘rising powers’. The first step is to increase awareness of how and why these countries engage in conflict-affected states, and what lessons can be drawn from their experience.

This briefing, produced by Saferworld and the Rio-based Igarapé Institute, focuses on the case of Brazil. It is intended to stimulate dialogue and debate among policy actors in Brazil and internationally. Similar Briefings on the role of other rising powers will follow.
