Abstract

Spanish Abstract: El presente trabajo se enmarca en el actual debate sobre potencias emergentes intentando un aporte desde una perspectiva latinoamericana. Para ello trabajará algunas disyuntivas teóricas que se han tornado difíciles de resolver para el mainstream racionalista de la disciplina, desarrollando un modelo de cambio complementario del programa realista actual. Argumentaremos que este marco presenta algunas ventajas para el estudio de diversas cuestiones relativas a las relaciones de poder en América del Sur, destacando en particular dos preguntas: ¿qué características de la política exterior del Brasil han logrado constituirlo en una potencia emergente? ¿Y por qué los países de la región no han desarrollado una política exterior acorde al desafío que significa el ascenso de su principal contraparte regional?

English Abstract: This article is framed within the current debate on emerging powers from a Latin American perspective. It tries to solve some of the theoretical problems of the mainstream rationalist approach in IR theory, proposing a model of change rooted in the current realist program. This framework is applied to the study of power politics in South America with the goal of answering two major questions: why has Brazilian foreign policy been so successful in positioning this country as an emerging power? And why have not any country in the region reacted accordingly to the challenge posed by its mayor regional counterpart rise?
