Is Brazilian engagement in Africa driven by a 'southern solidarity'? The speakers will assess what distinguishes Brazil from other emerging powers on the continent, looking at how their Africa strategy fits in with wider Brazilian foreign policy and what the prospects are for trilateralism (with India and South Africa) and south-south cooperation.

This event will also launch the forthcoming Chatham House briefing paper, Brazil in Africa – Just Another BRICS Country Seeking the Continent's Resources? by Christina Stolte.

The event is part of the conference on Brazil in the World. 

Attendance is by invite only.
