Nel, Philip & Taylor, Ian (2013) Bugger thy Neighbour? ibsa and South–South Solidarity. Third World Quarterly Vol. 34, No. 6,: 1091-1110.

South–South cooperation is assumed to reflect a deep attitude of solidarity among nations of the global South. We point out that, although India, Brazil and South Africa (IBSA) present themselves as being in the vanguard of South–South cooperation, their foreign economic policies make such solidarity somewhat thin. We focus on examples in which these three states deliberately but also unintentionally create sub-optimal conditions for the development of some of their Southern neighbours. This outcome reflects the policies that merging centres of accumulation in the South are promoting, as well as the material interests of the dominant class alliances in the aforementioned states. There is a need for close scrutiny of the foreign economic policies of dynamic developing economies, and for closer multilateral coordination among the states of the global South.
