“BRIC in 2020″ Conference & Round Table

Brazil, Russia, India, and China commonly known as BRIC, together constitute more than 25% of the world’s GDP. These countries are projected to grow much faster than developed economies in the next 20 years.

The goal of this conference is to bring together experts on Brazil, Russia, India, and China to discuss social and economic issues facing these emerging economies and how these challenges will affect their political development. Speakers will discuss the implications of this world economic transformation both on domestic politics and on the international order. Is it meaningful to group these countries together? How will these countries use their growing economic power to influence global politics and economic order?

When: Friday May 13th – Saturday, May 14th, 2011, at The University of Chicago
