A Decade of BRICS: Indian Perspectives for the Future

A Decade of BRICS: Indian Perspectives for the Future


As the BRICS grouping nears a decade of existence, this GP-ORF volume edited by Samir Saran offers commentary from pre-eminent scholars and emerging next-generation researchers on measures that can separate and insulate the group from the vagaries of international discord. It provides area-specific insights and recommendations to promote a greater focus on key issues important to each BRICS nation and the continued institutionalisation of the grouping. The chapters cover the following themes: governance, development, energy, health, gender, security, smart cities, and the cyber sphere.
