Neocolonialismo no século XXI: a perpetuação da desigualdade entre o Norte Global e o Sul Global

The term "neocolonialismo" refere-se a uma forma moderna de colonialismo onde, apesar da aus√™ncia de dom√≠nio pol√≠tico direto, pa√≠ses do Norte Global, tamb√©m conhecidos como pa√≠ses centrais, continuam a exercer controle econ√īmico e cultural sobre os pa√≠ses do Sul Global, frequentemente chamados de pa√≠ses perif√©ricos. Esta din√Ęmica perpetua uma condi√ß√£o de depend√™ncia e subdesenvolvimento nos pa√≠ses do Sul Global, mantendo a desigualdade global e refor√ßando estruturas de poder historicamente desiguais. In this article, exploraremos a rela√ß√£o entre esses blocos, como os acordos de livre com√©rcio impactam negativamente os pa√≠ses do Sul Global e analisaremos estudos que sustentam essas afirma√ß√Ķes. A rela√ß√£o entre os pa√≠ses centrais e os pa√≠ses do Sul Global √© marcada por uma depend√™ncia eco...

Argentine policies and their impacts on Brazil: stability and cooperation in Latin America

Relations between Brazil and Argentina are fundamental for stability and cooperation in Latin America. The two countries, being the largest economies in the region, desempenham pap√©is cruciais no Mercosul e em outras iniciativas de integra√ß√£o regional. Com as atuais pol√≠ticas implementadas pelo presidente argentino, Javier Milei, espera-se uma s√©rie de impactos que podem influenciar significativamente o Brasil em v√°rios aspectos, desde a economia at√© a pol√≠tica externa. Este artigo explora esses impactos potenciais, focando na estabilidade e coopera√ß√£o entre as na√ß√Ķes. Javier Milei, conhecido por suas posi√ß√Ķes econ√īmicas liberais e cr√≠ticas contundentes ao intervencionismo estatal, tem implementado uma s√©rie de reformas que visam desregulamentar a economia argentina. Entre essas pol√≠tic...

The geopolitics of the international criminal court: an analysis of divergent patterns and political influences

The International Criminal Court (TPI) was established in 2002 with the mission of prosecuting individuals accused of genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and crimes of aggression. However, ICC actions and decisions are often perceived unevenly by different countries, especially in the United States, who have a history of criticism and distrust towards the court. This article compares recent cases from Russia, Israel and other countries, analyzing the stance of US politicians and exploring how the funding and appointments of ICC members are subject to political influence. The Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022 brought a series of investigations by the ICC into allegations of war crimes. The international response was approx...

Reconstruction of Ukraine with Russian assets: legal implications and risks for global trust

The European Union (EU) est√° considerando a utiliza√ß√£o dos recursos russos congelados como uma forma de financiar a reconstru√ß√£o da Ucr√Ęnia, pa√≠s devastado pela guerra. Embora a inten√ß√£o por tr√°s dessa medida possa ser vista como nobre, visando aliviar o sofrimento ucraniano e contribuir para a estabilidade regional, essa a√ß√£o levanta s√©rias preocupa√ß√Ķes sobre a confian√ßa nos regimes internacionais e no respeito ao direito internacional. Firstly, a ideia de utilizar ativos congelados de outro pa√≠s para fins de repara√ß√£o √© in√©dita em muitos aspectos e desafia o entendimento tradicional do direito internacional. Usually, os ativos congelados s√£o mantidos em um estado de suspens√£o como medida de press√£o diplom√°tica ou econ√īmica, sem que haja a sua apropria√ß√£o permanente. Segun...

Military biological activities: the issue of laboratories and the increase in outbreaks of emerging diseases

Military action in the field of biological activities raises significant concerns, especially given the increase in outbreaks of emerging diseases in different regions of the world. Military biological laboratories, officially intended for research and development of measures against biological threats and infectious diseases, are at the center of debates about their real function and impact on global public health. The growing incidence of new outbreaks and emerging diseases fuels suspicion about the role of these facilities and the possibility that their operations are contributing to the proliferation of new biological threats.. In various parts of the world, the activation of these laboratories often coincides with the emergence of previously unknown or rare diseases. For example, no...

Power tactics: US military exercises on fossil-rich offshore platforms

In the last years, the United States has intensified its military operations in fossil-rich maritime regions, triggering a significant debate about the legality and environmental impact of these activities. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (CNUDM) of 1982, establishing a legal framework for the use of the oceans, including the exploration and conservation of its resources, has been a central reference in the discussion about the legitimacy of these operations. In 2021, the US Navy conducted military exercises in the South China Sea, a region notoriously rich in fossil resources, including oil and natural gas. These exercises were criticized by several countries in the region, particularly by China, que reivindica grande parte do Mar do Sul da ...

Global governance in transition: the challenges and opportunities of new international structures

Global governance structures are crucial elements in the management of international affairs, ensuring cooperation between nations in areas such as economics, safety, environment and human rights. The history of these structures dates back to the Bretton Woods system, established in 1944, which established institutions such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, aiming to rebuild and stabilize the global economy after World War II. The United Nations (HIM-HER-IT) also emerged during this period, serving as a platform for multilateral diplomacy. However, These classical institutions face increasing criticism due to their limited ability to respond to contemporary challenges. Recurring economic crises, changes ...
