analyzes the phenomenon of the BRICS group and its transformation into BRICs.
From the first Summit, whose final declarations were mainly centered on
economic, financial and commercial themes, the group attention has broadened
its horizons, as to encompass health, agriculture, environment, international
relations. The BRICS working method seems to suggest a new pattern of
inter-state relations, based on peer-to-peer cooperation, experiences sharing
and “soft” policy transfer. Given the difficult classification of this new “entity”,
the author suggests considering it more as a network, where there is not a
singular hegemony power, but where the relevance of the different countries
varies according to the issue discussed in the Summit.
