The grouping consisting of Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC)
was initially meant to be nothing more than clever investment
jargon referring to the largest and most attractive emerging
economies. However, these countries identified with the BRIC
concept, and started to meet annually as a group in 2008. At their
fourth summit in 2011, they added South Africa to become the BRICS.
By then the BRICS had fully morphed from investment jargon to a
name for a new economic and political grouping that had the
potential to challenge the unipolar hegemony of the United States
and its Western allies. This work analyses the extent to which the
concept of coexistence explains the individual foreign policies of
the BRICS countries. The editors define coexistence as a strategy
that promotes the establishment of a rule-based system for
co-managing the global order. It recognizes that different states
may legitimately pursue their own political and economic interests,
but they have to do so within the bounds of a rule-based
international system that ensures the peaceful coexistence of
states. The BRICS and Coexistence addresses the political dimension
of the emergence and influence of the BRICS in the international
system and will be of interest to students and scholars of
Politics, Development and International Relations.
