Abstract | Full Text

This study aimed to identify the ideological positions of Brazilian parties on the issue of foreign policy and their positions about Brazil’s role abroad in the presidential election of 2014. The results show that the ideological space in which the parties classified themselves along the left-to-right scale on foreign policy is quite similar to the way they are generally classified by political analysts in studies that do not consider foreign policy in isolation. Furthermore, the findings show that most of the parties defended Brazil’s playing a major role in foreign policy, although they differ regarding the strategic alliances that the country should establish.
