The BRIQ Journal is excited to announce a call for papers for its forthcoming special issue dedicated to exploring Latin America as a pivotal region in the global landscape of progressive movements and resistance against U.S. hegemony. This issue aims to delve into the multifaceted roles that Latin America plays in world politics, particularly focusing on its contributions to and engagements with global resistance movements, anti-imperialist efforts, and the shaping of a multipolar world order.

We invite submissions in the form of articles, essays, book reviews, and interviews that address a broad range of topics related to this theme. Potential areas of focus include, but are not limited to:

  • The global significance of Latin America in world politics
  • Historical and contemporary U.S. interventions in the region
  • Latin America’s resistance to imperialism and neocolonialism
  • Contributions of Latin America to the development of a multipolar world
  • Analysis of the “Pink Tide” movements, including the challenges, prospects, and achievements of left-leaning governments in Latin America
  • Regional unity efforts in Latin America
  • The role of regional and international alliances, relationships with BRICS countries, and interactions with China
  • Brazil’s initiative within the BRICS framework
  • China-Latin America relations and the progress of the Belt and Road Initiative in the region.

We are seeking contributions in English, Spanish, French, and Turkish from a wide variety of backgrounds, including academics, activists, policymakers, and scholars from disciplines such as political economy, geopolitics, international relations, sociology, and history. This call aims to gather diverse perspectives to provide a comprehensive analysis of Latin America’s role in the current global context.

To ensure accessibility and broader dissemination of accepted papers, all contributions selected for publication will be translated into English and Turkish.
