The Global Role of an Intermediate Power: Brazil and the Iranian Nuclear Program

Diego Santos Vieira de Jesus
From the journal New Global Studies


This report examines Brazil’s participation in international talks on Iranian nuclear activities. In the mediation of the fuel swap, Brazil tried to facilitate dialogue in order to allow the knowledge of each side’s experiences, build trust and minimize the level of tension and hostility between the parties through flexibility. Maybe now there is another opportunity to give intermediate countries such as Brazil a chance to participate in the discussions, because they could try to start a process of cooperation that would simultaneously meet Iranian legitimate needs and increase transparency on the controversial Iranian nuclear program.
