Abstract:The celebration of 40 years of independence of Portuguese-speaking African Countries (PALOP) is critical to understand the historical and socio-economic integration into the world system of these former Portuguese colonies in Africa (i.e. Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde, Mozambique, Sao Tome and Principe and Angola). The socialist experiments in the 1970s and 1980s, the external constraints, the economic reform and the move towards a multi-party system in the 1990s as well as the attempt to stabilize and develop in the 2000s, show the successes and failures in the construction of the five young countries. This article examines the relations of these countries with Brazil and the political, economic, social and diplomatic path they have followed. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract].
