This article analyzes the puzzling behavior of these detached or reluctant regional powers. We argue that resorting to an approach grounded in neoclassical realism is helpful to explain why regional powers might not exercise leadership. In this article regional leadership is conceptualized as an auxiliary goal within the grand strategy of a regional power. This goal will be pursued in the absence of certain structural and domestic constraints. Great power competition determines the incentives for regional leadership at the structural level. Capacity to extract and mobilize resources for foreign policy affects the decision to pursue leadership at the domestic level. We apply the analytical framework to analyze Brazil’s detachment from South America after the Cardoso and Lula presidencies.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2021-10-28</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2021-11-03T09:29:56Z</dc:date> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dcterms:title>To lead or not to lead: regional powers and regional leadership</dcterms:title> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Schenoni, Luis L.</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Nolte, Detlef</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2021-11-03T09:29:56Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
