New issue of IRMO Brief analyses the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP)

The December 2018 edition of the IRMO Brief, written by Marco Esteves Lopes focuses on the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP) and the challenges this organization is likely to face in a near future. The author analyses the importance of the CPLP as a main axis of the Portuguese foreign policy and unveils the reasons why the organization is currently at a crossroads. The text offers an analysis of internal trends within the organization and gives particular reference to Angola’s and Brazil’s newly elected governments and the way the formulation of their own foreign policies will impact the CPLP as a whole.
