Os desafios da política externa do Governo Joe Biden

Presidente dos EUA Joe Biden Ao completar seu primeiro mês no cargo, o Presidente Joe Biden se defronta com vários desafios na política internacional. O manejo desses desafios começa a revelar os novos rumos da política externa norte-americana. O enfrentamento das múltiplas questões que envolvem o relacionamento EUA/China é desafiado pela incrível complexidade das questões, além da falta de consenso no governo e no Partido Democrata sobre qual deve ser o foco da relação dos EUA com o gigante asiático. Há uma maioria que defende o fim da confrontação política permanente e do esforço de desassociação das economias (decoupling, no termo em inglês), posição defendida por poderosos grupos econômicos que mantém enormes interesses na China. At the same time, muitos integrantes do partido Dem...

The Dragon threatens…

The pretty orange and red coloured dragon weaves through the crowds of people in Liverpool's Chinatown chasing a pearl during Chinese New Year celebrations. “Pintou o horror” no meio acadêmico e na mídia ocidental com relação à “ameaça” da China! Somente nestes últimos meses têm proliferado matérias, reflexões, notícias, debates, em vários veículos acadêmicos e da mídia internacional alertando para a necessidade urgente de o Ocidente contra-arrestar a emergência do “dragão chinês”. A última edição da Foreign Affairs e o site “Project Syndicate”, entre outros veículos, estão repletos de análises neste sentido. Muitas delas parecem aceitar o que lhes parece inevitável: o ocaso da hegemonia americana, e do Ocidente. Cito, a este respeito, trecho da matéria “Present at the Re-creatio...

China, a moderately prosperous society that reconfigures global power. Special interview with Fausto Godoy

For: João Vitor Santos | 09 February 2021 While the Brazilian government fixed diplomatic quarrels, plunged into chaos and death from pandemic, a China seguia seu curso e enviava ao Brasil a primeira vacina contra a Covid-19, além de insumos para a produção de vacinas de outras farmacêuticas. Para o professor de Relações Internacionais e diplomata aposentado Fausto Godoy isso é ilustrativo de o quanto não só o Brasil, mas o Ocidente de modo geral estão aquém da lógica e do pensamento chinês. “A China não só não está já organizando sua vacinação como está mandando vacinas para o mundo todo, e ainda sem falar no envio de técnicos e equipamentos”, observa, em entrevista concedida por telefone à ...

Letter to sinologists

Many wonder about what is Sinology, what does a sinologist, who is considered Sinologist or not and what is the purpose of this career. As Sinology itself teaches us through one of its famous Chengyu expressions: Dào Shān Xué Hǎi (Daoshan Xuehai), which in a free translation means: learning is as high as the mountain and as deep as the ocean, however, if we do a literal analysis, we will see that Confucius, who was assigned that expression, associated Dào (Tao), the way or doctrine to Shān (mountain) Mountain. So that we can deduce that the road to knowledge is as high as the mountain, that reaching the peak requires effort, so something tiring and laborious. And when we talk about Dào (Tao) way, we bring up, the Taoism, Chinese Buddhism and Confucionism ...

Wang Yi - Ministro de Relações Exteriores da China Esta é a quarta e última da série de postagens que estou fazendo da entrevista que o Ministro dos Negócios Estrangeiros e Conselheiro de Estado da República Popular da China, Wang Yi, concedeu, no início deste ano, para o canal em inglês do grupo estatal “China Global Television Network”/CGTN, in which he made an assessment of China's foreign policy over 2020 and its projection for this year and the future. As I mentioned before, I decided to transcribe and translate the interview, only, without any interference or personal consideration, since I consider it important to know the official view that the Chinese Chancellery has of the role it understands to be that of China, and your own, in international relations. And just like in pos ...

The People's Republic of China and its 14th Five-Year Plan

Leaders of the Communist Party of China in approval ceremony of the Five Year Plan Since snatching power in China, in 1949, the Chinese Communist Party took the leading role in laying the foundations of communism “a la china” and monocratically defined development strategies and reforms through goals. Gradually, they modified the profile of the People's Republic, of a centralized Maoist economy until 1976, headed for the “socialist market economy”, that Deng Xiaoping “neologically” coined to qualify the process of reform and openness 1979 in the quest to break the country's multi-century isolation and insert it into the world of the last quarter of the 20th century. It is worth remembering that in this process, already from 1953 They passed...

China and Brazil: the old and the young

Chinese President Xi Jinping with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro in Brasilia, 13 November 2019. (Xinhua Photo) Following the fashion in vogue in today's Brazil to speak using metaphors related to trivial and private aspects of human life, let's start with a metaphor, however, we will enrich it with some concepts and examples from the far east. It is known that, at different stages of life, we are faced with crises of different circumstances, some light, other serious. Today, with 520 years of history, Brazil can be considered a young nation, in front of 5000 years that China has. This young man, just like any other, faces crises, but at that moment there are intense crises that depending on your choices, define the direction and results of the future. In this ...
