SPOSITO, Ítalo Beltrão. Foreign policy change in Brazil: comparing Castelo Branco (1964-1967) and Fernando Collor (1990-1992). Bras. Political Sci. Rev. [online]. 2013, vol.7, n.3, pp.118-144. ISSN 1981-3821.

In this article, I intended to develop an analytical schema to analyze moments of redirection in Brazilian Foreign Policy. The schema encompasses the following logic: sources from national and international contexts may influence the domestic political arena, leading to the opening of a policy window and the rupture of stabilizers, which together may form a scenario prone to reform in terms of foreign guidelines. In this context, the decision makers may opt to promote a foreign policy change (FPC). To apply this model, we chose two administrations that are substantially different as to their international system and their political scope, even though both are considered by the Brazilian foreign policy literature as restructuration periods. By studying these administration's foreign policies, we tested the utility of this model and accomplished a comparative analysis seeking similarities amongst these chancing processes.

Palavras-chave : Sources; stabilizers; change; foreign policy.
