BRACEY, Djuan. Brazil and UN peacekeeping: the cases of East-Timor and Haiti. Contexto int. [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.2, pp.315-331. ISSN 0102-8529.

The following article examines Brazil's motivations for contributing to peacekeeping missions. The work focuses on its participation in East-Timor and its leadership of the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti. Brazil seeks prestige and hopes to gain influence through the pragmatic mechanisms of its foreign policy. The author believes the contributions are advantageous for the country, given the low cost of the missions, along with the receipt of military training, global visibility and an extension of Brazil's political and economic influence.

Keywords : Peacekeeping; Haiti; Minustah; East Timor.
