Puissances moyennes dans le jeu international

Le Brésil et le Mexique aux Nations unies
Brazil and Mexico at the United Nations

The author studied Brazil and Mexico's multilateral policies, in three different bodies of the United Nations (the Security Council, the Commission on Human Rights and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development [UNCTAD]) since its creation in 1945

After presenting in a historic multilateral perspective, the different steps of integration of the two countries, the author distinguishes three ways of being in the United Nations: the non-multilateralism or the absence of any multilateral policies elaborated by States that nevertheless belonged to international organisations ; the limited multilateralism, a term used to describe behaviour on the fringes of the multilateral stage ; and finally the multilateralism, a more co-operative and less defensive attitude, which also contains room for protest and proposals when faced with unsatisfactory measures.
