Abstract

Spanish Abstract: En el siglo xxi, Brasil ha pasado de la indiferencia al estrellato, y de ahí a la desilusión, pero los ciclos de euforia y desencanto han ocultado lo esencial: el país no ha crecido significativamente frente al mundo, aunque sí lo ha hecho frente a América del Sur. Por eso resulta importante analizar el ascenso del gigante sudamericano como el paso de una histórica bipolaridad argentino-brasileña a su actual primacía. Con el foco en este proceso, este artículo desentraña la lógica por detrás de la relación de Brasil con sus vecinos durante tres décadas de unipolaridad regional.

English Abstract: In the 21st Century Brazil has tasted both indifference and success, and decline all the way from there to disappointment. Those cycles of euphoria and disillusionment have overshadowed an essential trend in this period: While the country has not grown significantly vis-à-vis the world, it has done so importantly when compared with the rest of South America. For this reason, it is important to analyze the rise of the South American giant as the transit from a historic bipolarity between Argentina and Brazil to its current primacy. Focusing on this process, this article unveils the logic behind the relation between Brasilia and its neighbors in three decades of regional unipolarity.

Keywords: Brasil, Argentina, América del Sur, unipolaridad
