In 2013, emerging powers will produce the majority of the world’s economic output. With these countries - which extend beyond the BRICS - now actually emerged, this blog aims at challenging your perspectives on development and international cooperation. What are the consequences, worldwide and within the countries, of this, so far mainly economic, change in the global power balance? We provide first-hand analysis from within these mainly middle-income countries, which are set to take the lead in the global economy. You are welcome to contribute to this debate.
