This article proposes an analytical framework to describe and explain the political economy of Brazilian foreign economic relations in the Geisel administration. We use variables from the international system, considering how they interact with decision makers’ ideas and perceptions, interbureaucratic disputes within the State apparatus, the domestic politics, and exogenous economic dynamics.
Keywords : Brazil; international political economy; Geisel.
