Here you find an overview of publications on new developments in countries like Brazil, China, India, Turkey and South Africa. The core of the Dossier is formed by a blog under supervision of Peter Konijn. Konijn is the program director of ‘Knowing Emerging Powers’, an independent not-for-profit foundation and a space for who want to learn more about the role of China, India and Brazil in the development of Africa.
This dossier consists mostly of articles that have been published on The Broker previously, but which are still very relevant. We never the less kick off with a brand new article on South Africa. Jean Paul Marthoz takes an in depth look at South Africa’s foreign policy in the last few years.
The Dossier will be kept up to date and new articles on emerged powers and global shifts in power in the world, will be published here.
