An Interview with Celso Amorim, Former Brazilian Foreign Minister
Juliano Fiori

first time in modern history, the major global power – I am of course referring to the US – doesn’t have a project for the world. It is evident that the US has always defended its own interests, but it always imagined or at least presented its interests – I’m not casting a value judgement here – as linked to a project for the world. Following the Second World War, it was the Americans who assumed primary responsibility for the creation of the international system, starting with Roosevelt. Some international institutions were accessible to all

the communities within which they reside ( Turchik et al. , 2016 : 143). This would require shifting away from the language that exclusively focuses on casting men as perpetrators and women as victims of violence ( Turchik et al. , 2016 : 137). For example, one of the mechanisms for receiving clients within humanitarian settings includes having the literature about CRSV on display. The language used in these areas for receiving victims

. Solidarity provides a sound moral framework to bridge reason and emotion. It also addresses the flaws of témoignage, which has fostered a humanitarian-centric vision of change and a de-politicised humanity, foregrounding the physical needs of human beings, and casting social, economic, emotional and spiritual needs as matters outside the humanitarian realm. The humanitarian enterprise is still widely seen as a patronising undertaking, mirroring deep

), which “encouraged a ‘defensive convergence’ between the EU and Mercosur to ensure reciprocal access to their markets”. They argue that the repoliticisation of trade negotiations, casting these as a defence of the liberal order, and a window of opportunity in terms of timing (the desire to complete negotiations ahead of a change of EC and Argentine elections in October 2019) were also key factors encouraging the parties to make sufficient concessions to each other to conclude the agreement. This volume has shown how inter-regional relations have

audience. As Mark Salter points out, the public is not always the audience being appealed to in securitising moves (2008, pp. 327–8) and within the internet security companies studied in this volume, we see the breadth of this audience and the casting of a very wide net that targets the general public, business of all sizes, the public sector and even other experts/companies. The breadth of the messaging here tells us something about the companies’ status within the security community. Notwithstanding what was covered in the Introduction regarding the ever

. These features that are thought to set it apart from its Arab environment and constitute the basis of its deep affinity with the West, if recognized in the execution of rational racialized policies towards the native population, risk casting shadows on the state’s morality. Were the practices of surveillance and control in which it engaged in the early period seen to be planned, it might suggest that Israel was far from being democratic and modernizing. As a way out of this predicament of rationality/irrationality, some researchers and commentators have claimed that

Chinese Community Party (CCP), the casting of China as a ‘rising threat’ constitutes an ultimate challenge to its rule and legitimacy. It follows that there is a deep sense of unease among the CCP leadership in particular about a strategy of ‘peaceful evolution’ allegedly orchestrated by the United States for democratic changes in China.

While there was a definite stick held in reserve, the predominant theme that Brazilian foreign policy makers were consequently able to use with varying effectiveness was one of collaborative growth and solidarity, not reconstruction of hierarchy and new relationships of dependency. Casting the FDI web The intricate and interweaving pattern of ownership seen in the Vale case is replicated throughout the Brazilian economy. Indeed, just taking Bradespar as a case leads quickly to another group of

of the European Middle Ages. Hag (Middle English hagge ) comes from Anglo-Saxon hægtesse , probably from the Anglo-Saxon haga meaning hedge, a place where witches were said to have their abode (Skeat 1993 : 191). 3 Hedges are boundaries of sorts, and witches belong along and astride boundaries. In Norwegian and other Scandinavian languages, the standard word for the concept of witch remains heks (compare the English expression to ‘hex’ someone for casting a spell on them). The Old Norse giants were called jotunn . The home world of the jotunn , Utgárd
