INSEAD Working Paper 2013/68/ST

This paper is the second of three working papers looking at the role and projection of Brazil as an emerging global power1. Is Brazil’s rise on the global stage barely beginning, or has it already hit a plateau, held back by numerous domestic challenges and the external constraints of the global governance system? In this second paper we examine Brazil’s emerging multinational companies, which constitute one of the most visible aspects of the country’s economic hard power.
