BRICS BANK ANALYSIS
Rise of BRICS as new world order



Niall Reddy 6 August 2014

Unlike in Durban in March 2013, the conclusion of the BRICS summit in Fortaleza was greeted with massive international media attention. The ostensible source of this renewed interest, following months of bad press for emerging markets, was the birth of the New Development Bank (NDB) and a $100 billion Contingent Reserve Arrangement (“CRA”) between member nations.

BRICS cook the climate
Patrick Bond

As they meet in Durban on March 26-27, leaders of the BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – must own up: they have been emitting prolific levels of greenhouse gases, far higher than the US or the EU in absolute terms and as a ratio of GDP (though less per person). How they address this crisis could make the difference between life and death for hundreds of millions of people this century.

Why the West still rules


Why the West still rules

Oliver Stuenkel 24 February 2013

Review: The Art of Power Maintenance: How Western States Keep the Lead in Global Institutions by Robert Wade (Challenge, vol. 56, no. 1, January/February 2013, pp. 5–39)

The West is in decline and the world is becoming more multipolar. As a consequence, emerging powers such as China, Brazil and India are claiming for more power within international institutions. The questions of how existing institutions can adapt to new realities, and whether we need new structures to respond to recent changes, are among the defining puzzles of our time.
