SILVA, Antonio Ruy Almeida; BRAGA, Carlos Chagas Vianna  and  MARCONDES, Danilo. The Brazilian participation in UNIFIL: raising Brazil’s profile in international peace and security in the Middle East?. Rev. bras. polít. int. [online]. 2017, vol.60, n.2, e011.  Epub Dec 21, 2017. ISSN 1983-3121.

Brazil’s involvement in the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) since 2011 has allowed for a direct participation as part of international peace and security efforts in the Middle East, strengthening the country’s credentials as it presents itself as a ‘peace provider’. Informed by academic contributions on issues of responsibility and recognition, the article discusses Brazil’s engagement with particular reference to UNIFIL’s Maritime Task Force, and the implications of such participation for its broader foreign and defence policy agenda.

Keywords : Brazil; UNIFIL; Middle East.
