Margaret Anstee seminar series 2022: New segment of Brazilian development cooperation: an analysis of the Trilateral Centres for South-South Cooperation in partnership with the UN
23rd February 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Jenifer Santana, Visiting PhD student, Margaret Anstee Centre for Global Studies
1.05pm-2pm, Wednesday 23 February, Lucia Windsor Room, Newnham College
The Centre of Excellence against Hunger in Brazil, and the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG), are relatively innovative forms of trilateral development partnerships. Initiated through a UN-Brazilian dialogue, these Centres have since been set up elsewhere, with host countries including China, India, Singapore, Turkey and Ivory Coast. Each constitutes a partnership with a specific UN organisation, and has a thematic focus. The main aim of the two Brazilian Centres of Excellence is to instrumentalize the diffusion and transfer of Brazilian public policies to other countries in the global South.
Based on archival research and interviews with key stakeholders, this seminar will present initial results of a research project analysing the emergence of these Centres, their political and development implications for the evolving field of South-South Cooperation; as well as the turbulent and changing domestic contexts within which they have evolved.
Tea, coffee, and cake will be provided. Please note that the room will be well-ventilated, so dress warmly!
