This collection of conference papers, presented by the BRIC countries' scholars examine the major issues facing these nations, including the Financial Crisis, International Trade, Climate Change, Foreign Direct Investment, Technological Innovation and Global Governance, plus the role of BRIC countries in the global transformation during post-crisis period, and put forward some suggestions for the BRIC countries' cooperation.

This book presents some of the divergent interests of member states as well as their common concerns. It is a case study how such diverse countries as Brazil, India, Russia, South Africa and China can sit down together and attempt to forge an alliance which can have an immense impact on the future of the global economy. This collection of conference papers presented by the BRIC countries’ scholars helps reveal the current situation and future prospects of BRIC countries.
