Myths and images in global climate governance, conceptualization and the case of brazil (1989 - 2019) Academic Article


  • Revista Brasileira de Politica Internacional


  • Countries have a self-image of their role in global climate governance. If that image does not correspond to the country’s actual level of climate power, commitment and leadership, it becomes a myth. In this article, we define climate self-images/myths and analyze comprehensively the Brazilian case between 1989 and 2019. For most of this period, Brazil’s self-image was a myth.
