Research Profile

Vinicius's research addresses what is considered to be a successful peacekeeping operation (PKO), focusing specifically on the lessons-learnt and taught in the southern hemisphere. Currently, he is investigating whether specific armed forces from certain countries are successful in implementing mandates and conducting PKOs. The main hypothesis is that countries in which armed forces have historically been involved in national development and civilian affairs consistently deliver more robust PKOs. He investigates particularly the case of Brazil where Armed Forces have been systematically employed in policing activities addressing issues of urban violence.
