Foreign Policy, Regionalism and International Cooperation in a Pandemic Scenario: A Project in Partnership with CAPES Print

The project is coordinated by Carlos Milani, Labmundo coordinator, Leticia Pinheiro, NEAAPE coordinator, and Maria Regina Soares de Lima, OPSA coordinator. As a result of the pandemic, some agendas have been changed – and are now being organized only digitally. Over the coming months, we will be disseminating various forms of material, including webinars, texts and videos, on various agendas that cover foreign policy, regionalism and international cooperation.
