Engaging BRICS challenges and opportunities for civil society

The emergence of BRICS represents an important change in the global political economy and their role in economic and social progress. However, there are concerns that the group could pose challenges to human rights and development and as such the paper argues there is a significant role for civil society in the BRIC to build a broader agenda of rights and accountability. This paper explores ideas and insights for civil society engagement with the BRICS agenda, based largely on interviews held with 34 representatives of the development sector, academia and media within BRICS countries and outside.
