Abstract

At the beginning of the twenty-first century, Brazil took advantage of its
economically and politically position to challenge global normative. In 2004, the concept of “non-indifference” was integrated into the vocabulary of foreign policy, justifying and legitimating the country’s of the invitation to command the United Nations Stabilization in Haiti (MINUSTAH). On the one hand, non-indifference can be read a discursive maneuver that enabled Brazil to accommodate its non-agenda to an old geopolitical game, given the pressure upon “global players” to respond effectively and assertively to to international peace and security. On the other hand, the “Brazilian” could also be seen as an alternative to a highly masculinized geopolitical to international security. This paper explores possible limitations, and/or opportunities that emerge from the encounter between a diplomatic agenda and a masculinizing ordering of the international
space. It does so by contrasting Brazil’s ambition for a permanent seat on the Nations Security Council (UNSC), the club of powerful states, with diplomatic and military performance during MINUSTAH, widely as a success due to characteristics such as solidarity, generosity, and the “warm conviviality” of Brazilian culture.
