The BRICS in international development

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.
