Abstract:

The political climate between Argentina and Brazil has changed from one of conflict to one of cooperation. The purpose of this thesis is to explain cooperation between Argentina and Brazil. A single qualitative case study is used to test three competing hypotheses 1 the transition to democracy by Argentina 1983 and Brazil 1985 promotes cooperation 2 the external economic environment forces cooperation and 3 both the transition to democracy and the economic environment have forced cooperation between the two countries. The findings are that the global market and the need to compete in it is the driving force for cooperation between Argentina and Brazil, but it is evident that the transition to democracy by both countries played a role in the intensification of cooperation that began in 1985.
