“The Visegrád Countries and Brazil”, edited by Sándor Gyula Nagy (IWE CERS, Hungary)

The book aims to strengthen economic, cultural, scientific and human connections between Brazil and the Visegrád countries, and to contribute to the better understanding among them. The idea to prepare a publication about the Visegrád Group and Brazil first arose in 2017. The then President of the Fundaçăo Alexandre de Gusmăo (FUNAG), Ambassador Sérgio Eduardo Moreira Lima and the Ambassador of Hungary in Brasilia (2014–2018) Norbert Konkoly supported the idea and asked Sándor Gyula Nagy to search for authors and edit the book. As a Senior Research Fellow of the Institute for Foreign Affairs and Trade, he first turned to the V4 partners of IFAT (in the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia) and to the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to find the best experts for the job. He managed to compile a group of very enthusiastic and dedicated authors from all these countries. Huge gratitude to them for contributing lots of data, ideas and contacts to the book. The editor would also like to express his thanks to the Hungarian Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade for the help provided in publishing this book on a unique and lesser known topic outside of the European Union. The editor and the authors all hope that the publication will contribute to building new ties between Brazil and the Visegrád countries.
