Webinar and book launch event on BRICS and Emerging Economies

The expression coined by Jim O’Neill in 2001 has emerged to be an international co-operation forum of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. After the 2008 Financial Crisis, BRICS certainly played an important role in contributing to recovery with an increased share of global economic growth. However, many important issues and questions remain. 

A webinar with speakers include: Lord Jim O’Neill, former Chief Economist of Goldman Sachs; Professor Kunal Sen, Director, UNU/WIDER; Professor Elaine Unterhalter, Professor of Education and International Development, UCL Institute of Education; Professor Victor Murinde, AXA Professor of Finance and Development, SOAS; Professor Michael Woolcock, Harvard Kennedy School and the World Bank.
