Notes on a Center of Excellence in the Memory of Brazil

José Amaral Argolo

Created in 1949, at the height of the Cold War, the War College, housed in the São João Fortress Complex in the Urca neighborhood, is one of the most important reference centers not only for studies on Brazil, but also on the variables of multiple world scenarios. For eleven months, starting in February, trainees on the Course of Advanced Studies in Politics and Strategy dedicate themselves to studying, in depth and with millimetric precision (and full-time), the issues that permeate the daily lives of both the country and other nation states. This accompaniment, translated into seminars, lectures, reflective and/or practical exercises of great complexity, specific colloquiums and study trips, ensures considerable insight into the world and the characteristics peculiar to each country, especially those daily victimized by turbulence of all kinds. For six years (2007-2012), the author was a member of the School's permanent staff, directing his concerns and studies towards the instigating and almost never disseminated aspects of Information Domination and the violent and harmful spectre of International Terrorism.
