Top scholars from Brazil, Russia, India, China will descend on our shores for the 10th BRICS Academic Forum scheduled for the 28th- 31st May 2018 at the Sandton Convention Centre. As the custodian of the South African BRICS Think Tank, we as the NIHSS are proud to host this platform.
The BRICS Academic Forum is a platform for academics and researchers to exchange knowledge and forge closer cooperation for knowledge generation. By the time of the Durban Summit in 2013, the forum had become institutionalised and had evolved into a broad framework of discussion giving it significant intellectual integrity. The forums of the first four summits helped stimulate the academic and research interest we refer to above, but also in shaping the intellectual remit of intra-BRICS discussions.
