We propose that overstretch results from the interaction of permissive international environments and the collusion of domestic actors to produce foreign policy myths. These myths, in turn, justify unsustainable swelling of foreign policy expenditures until they are shattered. After laying out our theory, we test it against the case of twenty-first-century Brazil. First, we document how interest groups logrolled to foster and capitalize on a “myth of multipolarity,” which, once entrenched in elite discourse and public opinion, resulted in a tangible overgrowth of foreign policy. Second, we show the extent of overstretch across four indicators—number of embassies, participation in peacekeeping operations, membership in international organizations, and aid projects overseas—using the synthetic control method to compare Brazil with a plausible counterfactual.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2022-01-10</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Schenoni, Luis L.</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-01-17T09:00:13Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Lopes, Dawisson Belém</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Lopes, Dawisson Belém</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Myths of Multipolarity : the Sources of Brazil's Foreign Policy Overstretch</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Casarões, Guilherme</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
