The Brazil Institute invites you to the South Atlantic Security: Actors, Interests & Strategies Conference's Panel 1 with Dr. André Panno Beirão.


The South Atlantic scenario, although it’s relatively more peaceful than other maritime regions, has also faced new challenges; mainly in security claims. For instance, the region known as the "Gulf of Guinea" is one of those scenarios that demand special attention. But, what do the regional actors, indeed, feel like a security problem? Regional approaches to the point are essential for cooperative actions.



Dr. André Panno Beirão has a Ph.D. in International Law from the Rio de Janeiro University, Navy Captain (Ret.), and an MA in Political Science. He is the Deputy-Coordinator of all Brazilian “Political Science – International Relations” MSc Programs. He is also a Professor at the Brazilian Naval War College and was the first Coordinator of the Maritime Studies Postgraduate Programme. He was awarded as the best Ph.D. Thesis on National Defense, from the Ministry of Defense of Brazil (period 2012-2014).
