ABDENUR, Adriana Erthal  and  SOUZA NETO, Danilo Marcondes de. Brazil and the cooperation in defense: building a regional identity in the South Atlantic. Rev. bras. polít. int. [online]. 2014, vol.57, n.1, pp.5-21. ISSN 1983-3121.

This article analyzes the cooperation that Brazil has been developing across the South Atlantic, showing that Brazil has adopted the role of region-builder, working to construct a South Atlantic identity while it secures for itself a position of preeminence. Such efforts begin to be contested by other actors from within and outside the region.

Keywords : South Atlantic; Brazil; Cooperation; Defense; ZOPACAS.
