Past Event


The BRICS in International Development

14 October 2016 23:30–13:00

OECD Auditorium, 2 Rue André Pascal, 75016 Paris, France

This event will take place on the eve of the inauguration of the 8th BRICS Summit, which will be held on 15-16 October in Goa, India, with the participation of five Heads of State.

The book offers a comprehensive comparative perspective on the increasingly significant development cooperation activities of the BRICS. Providing a powerful set of insights into the drivers for engagement within each country, it brings together leading experts from Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa and OECD countries.

The authors review the empirical evidence for the BRICS’ modes of development cooperation and their geographical reach, and explore the historical background and patterns of international development engagement of each country. They also present a cutting-edge analysis of the broader geopolitical shifts, distinctive ideologies and normative discourses that are influencing and informing their engagement in increasingly ambitious joint projects such as the New Development Bank.

Discussions will be led by book co-authors:

  • Richard Carey, Independent Consultant, Institute of Development Studies (IDS)
  • Jing Gu, Director, Centre for Rising Powers and Global Development, IDS
  • Richard Manning, Chair, Advisory Council on Rising Powers and Development, IDS
