Reviews

“The book relates to literature on international relations and the role of emerging powers in global governance. … The book offers a contribution to the literature on global governance in the issue areas of health, food safety and bioenergy in general, and about Brazil’s foreign relations in these particular sectors. … The author develops a clear and coherent analytical framework, which is consistently applied in each sector analysed, offering thus an overall well structured book, which is reader friendly.” (Renata Campos Motta, American and Caribbean Studies, Revista Europea de Estudios Latinoamericanos y del Caribe, Issue 104, July-December, 2017)

“Fraundorfer provides a comprehensive account of the central role played by the country in three different sectors: health, food security and bioenergy. ... The large contribution it makes towards a better understanding of the processes through which power is built in the international realm is undeniably impactful and the assessment about the importance of these three specific sectors is very enlightening. ... [T]his book is a remarkable and inspiring contribution to the debate on Brazil's emerging role in Global Governance, as well as a rich and detailed account on the discursive, organizational, and resource-based processes underscoring the country's new position in the international arena. ... This work stands out, therefore, as a mandatory reading for researchers and practitioners involved in global governance.” (Flávia Donadelli, Fellow in Public Policy and Administration, London School of Economics)
