Global Political Economy up for discussion at Bond University

Leading international experts will converge at Bond University from August 10 - 11 to discuss the global political economy’s changing paradigms at The Rise of BRICS conference.

Hosted by the Faculty of Law and the Tim Fischer Centre for Global Trade and Finance the discussions will examine the rise of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) who are predicted to become the most influential economies by the middle of this century.

Speakers include internationally renowned law academic Professor Muthucumaraswamy Sornarajah from the National University of Singapore who will be delivering the keynote address entitled BRICS in the New World Order of the Multipolar World.

Bond University Vice-Chancellor Professor Tim Brailsford will deliver the opening remarks and is pleased to endorse the calibre of international experts that will be assembling at Bond University.

“We have world-leading experts gathering to discuss topics including economics and finance, trade and investment, international relations and foreign policy and development and sustainability,” said Professor Brailsford.

The conference will look to address questions about the political and economic changes the ascendance of BRICS will bring and the impact these alliances will have on persistent tension between the developed and developing countries.

Professor Brailsford praised the diversity of the speakers who represent all BRICS countries and include a selection of Bond University’s world-class academics.

“This will be an excellent forum for a wide range of participants, including academics, students and the business community, to share research findings and practical experiences, to explore the implications of the changing landscape of the global political economy, and to draw lessons for the future,” said Professor Brailsford.
