Engaging BRICS: Challenges and Opportunities for Civil Society

Author: John, L. (study supported by Oxfam India)
Publication date: 2012

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.

It departs from the growing awareness that civil society in BRICS countries must build a broader agenda of rights and accountability around the international roles of their government and private sector. It investigates the opportunities and challenges for civil society and offers recommended strategies and steps to be taken.
