Chapter 4: The South as an arena of policy circulation: South–South cooperation on human rights policies
The practice of South–South cooperation for the purpose of policy transfer has received great political interest and priority in recent years. However, some public policies have had greater success than others in circulating among countries of the geopolitical South. In this framework, this chapter approaches the South as a relevant arena and, in doing so, looks into existing enablers and barriers to policy circulation. Of particular interest for this research are the role of international organisations and the effect of participatory and coordination-based policy features. Three cases are compared in which Brazil shared some of its human rights policy models with Guinea Bissau and Cuba.
