Brazil's emergence as a global power has given the new president, Dilma Rousseff, considerable voice abroad. Stronger diplomatic ties, increased Brazilian investment, and the waning authority of the United States have allowed Brazil to rise as the pivotal player in Latin America. Concurrently, Brazil's domestic priorities have grown due to the rapid movement of 40 million people into the middle class. This presentation assesses the Rousseff administration's challenge of maintaining a strong international presence while advancing an ambitious social and economic agenda in Brazil.

Dr. Julia Sweig is the Council on Foreign Relation's Senior Fellow and Director of Latin America Studies and the Global Brazil Initiative. She is also the award-winning author of Inside the Cuban Revolution: Fidel Castro and the Urban Underground.
