Treading the Diplomatic Tightrope: Lula’s Approach to the Israel-Palestine Conflict

During his presidential terms, Lula consistently advocated for the two-state solution, supporting the creation of an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel. He also vehemently criticized Israeli settlements in Palestinian territories, viewing them as a hindrance to peace. However, Brazil maintained diplomatic and trade relations with Israel, illustrating the intricate political and economic considerations that influence the country's foreign policy. Lula emphasized the importance of multilateralism and international diplomacy in the quest for a peaceful and equitable resolution to the conflict. The article explores how this approach reflects Lula's pursuit of autonomy and sovereignty in Brazilian foreign policy, while also highlighting challenges and criticisms faced during his diplomatic journey.

Is Bolsonaro an example of a radical right-wing populist?

Radical Right-Wing Populism (RWP) is a phenomenon that has been introduced previously in Latin America. In periods of economic crisis, the fight against inflation was another hallmark of right-wing populist appeals. Nevertheless, nativism, the core feature of RRP, was largely missing in earlier cases of RWP in Latin America. Nonetheless, Bolsonaro is as much a symptom of a broader trend as he is a consequence of recent Brazilian history.

Right Wing Populism in Latin America

Looking at Latin America, the criterion to define populism needs to be revised. Nativism and ethnopluralism seem out of place in a region where the concept of a homogenous nation-state never took hold and where mestizaje is a cultural ideal.

There are notable ideological overlaps with the European and North American New Right, for example, concerning immigration, which is a controversial issue in South America. There are also offenses against ethnic and cultural minorities, and nationalist rhetoric is pervasive.

Poverty Eradication, what a challenge!

Poverty inhabits different places and bodies, each one with different sociocultural, geographical, and historically variable dimensions and meanings.
