The partnership with Stanton was established to support the process of consolidating Fundação Getulio Vargas as a major think tank in Brazil regarding International Security and Strategy. Currently in its second year, the collaboration between Stanton and FGV promotes in-depth studies and discussions with decision-makers in Brazil and Latin America, in addition to developing public debate on modern-day international regulations. This project allowed FGV to join a select group of think tanks around the world who cooperate with the Stanton Foundation, such as the universities of Stanford, Yale and Harvard.
Rodrigo Mallea is a career diplomat from the Ministério de Relaciones Exteriores y Culto da Argentina and specializes in nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation. He is a PhD candidate at Universidad Torcuato Di Tella (Buenos Aires), featuring a thesis on strategies adopted by Argentina in recent decades to relate to the Brazilian nuclear program. Before joining Argentine diplomacy, Mallea was a research assistant at FGV’s Center for International Relations. His first book is titled “The Origins of Nuclear Cooperation: a Critical Oral History Between Argentina and Brazil” (FGV and Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, 2015), co-written by Nicholas Wheeler and Matias Spektor.
FGV’s Center for International Relations is based at the School of Social Sciences (CPDOC).
