The objective of the article is to demonstrate that the international protagonism of Lula's government seeks to bring back to international politics the development issue based, on one hand, on regionalism, and on the North / South clivage on the other hand, in order to advance the new demands of developing coutries. It is aked, based on this assumption, if the international strategies and the South-South dialogue both present on retoric and actions of Lula's government foreign policy represent enduring alliances or ephemeral coalitions among developing and least developing countries.
