A política externa saudita durante a Primavera árabe (2010-2014)

Bruno Mendelski de Souza, Emmanuel Brandolff Jardim

Resumo


A Primavera Árabe vem transformando a geopolítica do Norte da África e do Oriente Médio. Dentre as potências regionais, a Arábia Saudita vem se destacando por ter uma atuação incisiva nos variados países atingidos pela Primavera Árabe. Tendo como base esse quadro regional, o presente artigo tem como objetivo problematizar a política externa saudita durante a Primavera Árabe. Utilizando-se de uma revisão da literatura sobre o tema, e do referencial teórico baseado no omnibalancing, inferimos que a política externa da Arábia Saudita, ao apoiar golpes e financiar grupos rebeldes durante a Primavera Árabe, é guiada não tanto pela segurança estatal, mas sim pela manutenção e legitimidade de seu próprio regime frente à sua população.


Palavras-chave


Política Externa da Arábia Saudita; Primavera Árabe; Omnibalancing; Relações Internacionais do Norte da África e Oriente Médio; Política Internacional.
