Brasil: ¿hegemonía a pesar de todo?


  • Andrés Arturo Peña Galindo
  • Florent Frasson-Quenoz


A partir del 2014, Brasil entró en una fase de repliegue económico y social que muchos califican enfáticamente como una de las crisis más graves que el gigante del Sur haya tenido en su historia reciente. Los más alarmistas de los analistas ya predicen la desaparición de Brasil del escenario internacional y el fin de su protagonismo en la región. Sin embargo, y como se demuestra en este análisis riguroso, los elementos materiales del poder brasileño sólo se han consolidado desde principios del siglo XXI. De hecho, sin importar la retórica escogida por el gobierno de turno, desde la dictadura militar en los 80, se pueden evidenciar comportamientos reiterados que hablan por sí solos. El estado brasileño sigue una estrategia de dominación de su entorno político y geográfico utilizando los medios materiales a su disposición. En función del momento histórico, de la coyuntura económica y política, los gobiernos han escogido tácticas directas/ofensivas o tácticas indirectas/defensivas, pero la prioridad siempre ha sido la salvaguardia del territorio y de las capacidades productivas y destructivas del país.
