    Current Issue: November 2019

    This Special Issue is an attempt to study BRICS not just as a phenomenon of world economy or even global governance, but in the context of the changing international system and as one of the pillars of the emerging polycentric global order. The articles of the issue are divided into two parts. The first consists of in-depth analyses of the group within the general international context. The articles in the second part present various national and regional perspectives of BRICS from both member countries and other important international actors. Not only do the authors in this Special Issue hail from a wide variety of BRICS and non-BRICS countries, but each presents an entirely unique point of view. When brought together in a single volume, the result forms a comprehensive and valuable analysis of the BRICS phenomenon and its role in international politics and economics.
