Is the BRICS a geopolitical competitor to the West? In this episode of the NUPI podcast The World Stage, Thor Olav Iversen (NUPI), Cedric de Coning (NUPI) and Benedicte Bull (UiO) reflect on the driver and consequences of the expansion of the BRICS group of countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) to also include Saudi Arabia, Iran, Ethiopia, Egypt, Argentine and the UAE.
What is the core project of the BRICS? Does this extremely diverse group of countries really have anything in common? Are we seeing a global resurgence of the Cold War non-alignment movement? These questions and more are discussed by the researchers who together cover a vast geopolitical space and some of the most pertinent questions of our time.
