For publication in March 2014, Edited by Patrick Bond and Ana Garcia:
We welcome articles about BRICS from a critical perspective. There are many avenues for publishing about the BRICS from an optimistic, uncritical standpoint, not least the BRICS governments’ own academic ‘think tank’ network and the mainstream media. But social movements, labour organizations and other active citizens need analyses that advance the cause of justice, that do not suffer a failure of investigative nerve, and that fearlessly pose problems and alternatives.
We seek contributions from all five countries as well as those that are in the immediate hinterland of BRICS. The articles will be published in mid-March 2014, in time for the Fortaleza BRICS Summit.
