LOPES, Dawisson Belém  and  FARIA, Carlos Aurélio Pimenta de. When Foreign Policy Meets Social Demands in Latin America. Contexto int. [online]. 2016, vol.38, n.1, pp.11-53. ISSN 1982-0240.

In order to introduce this special issue of Contexto Internacional, we first seek to provide a panoramic understanding of the Latin American political landscape. Next, we consider the new (and not so new) development strategies adopted by Latin American states, and their implications for foreign policy and international relations. Following this, we offer a brief review of the literature on Latin American foreign policy analysis and some of the theoretical and methodological challenges facing the study of Latin American international relations, thus providing a context for a deeper understanding of the contributions to this special issue. Put differently, our objective is to provide readers with a general idea of the reasons why foreign policy has met, should have met, or has been expected to meet social demands in contemporary Latin America.

Keywords : Latin America; Foreign Policy, Social Demands; Foreign Policy Analysis; International Relations.
