To this we must add that the policy of depredation of the Amazon has been counterproductive for the project of regionalism proposed by Bolsonaro. The main members of the eu have already made it clear that, if there is no greater environmental Whatsapp Mobile Number List commitment from Mercosur, there will be no progress in signing the bi-regional agreement. Similarly, the sovereignist and refractory position of the Brazilian government on environmental issues also places a limit on advancing in intra-Mercosur agreements on these types of issues.
In any case, the Mercosur crisis is much deeper and its resolution does not go through increasing achievements in specific areas, in reforming the Whatsapp Mobile Number List institutional design or coordinating measures against the pandemic. The bloc is going through an identity crisis, in which its member countries must define whether to Whatsapp Mobile Number List Treaty of Asunción or modify its leitmotif towards something similar to the Pacific Alliance. In any case, it is worth noting that South American integration does not depend solely on the Brazilian political dynamic. Reversing or, in any case, attenuating Bolsonaro's incendiary policy of disintegration also requires that other actors -state and non-state- of the countries of the region move in the construction of some regional understanding that can contain and channel the differences.
In short, we can conclude that, by disarming the South Americanist project and moving away from the region, Bolsonaro ends up assuming without any question the traditional geopolitical imaginary of Latin America. This is, according to Heriberto Whatsapp Mobile Number List Cairo, that of a peripheral region in the world system, marginal in the dominant geopolitical models and subordinated to the US-led Pan-American project. Now, some movements of the recent situation may have an impact on the three factors that we develop here to explain the de-South Americanization of Brazil.
