The Peruvian Response to the Rise of Brazil: Developing a Strategic Relationship

Part of the Palgrave Studies in International Relations Series book series (PSIR)

Abstract

The Republic of Peru has enjoyed commercial and diplomatic relations with the Federative Republic of Brazil since the independence era; however, those relations were limited in scope, design, and purpose until the turn of the last century. With the rise of Brazil as an increasingly influential regional and international power, Peru saw an opportunity to expand and deepen its relationship with Brazil in the wider context of Peruvian policy in the Amazon region and participation in the Initiative for Integration of Regional Infrastructure in South America. As a result, bilateral relations between Peru and Brazil in areas like immigration, investment, trade, and security have expanded considerably over the last decade and look set to continue to grow in the future. The Peruvian response to the rise of Brazil was both deep-rooted and opportunistic, as a long-term Peruvian interest in a wider relationship with Brazil led to the conclusion of a strategic alliance as early as 2003.
