DALIO, Danilo José  and  MIYAMOTO, Shiguenoli. The Conference in Washington (1951) and the historical roots of a new standard Brazilian diplomatic. História [online]. 2009, vol.28, n.2, pp.57-78. ISSN 1980-4369.

The 1940s represented the peak and decline of the paradigm of the "special relationship" Brazil - United States, predominant for almost half a century in the Brazilian foreign policy. After the successful experience of collaboration during the Second World War, Brazil faced a period of frustration and disappointment in their relations with the government in Washington. Emerging as a hegemonic power, successive Americans governments have global interests and objectives in the new international order, leaving little to meet the demands of Latin American countries. The Fourth Meeting of Consultation of Foreign Ministers American held in Washington, between March and April 1951, explicited not only the goals and interests of disagreement between the U.S. and Latin American countries in the post-war, but also the emergence of a new perspective on relations within the continent, namely, from that time based on realistic and pragmatic negotiations, this orientation led by Brazil during the meeting.
