Online debate on India-Brazil- South Africa (IBSA) Policy Dialogue Forum
In partnership with the Ideas for Development blog, the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG) is launching an online debate that will contribute with inputs for the forthcoming IBSA Academic Forum, which will be hosted by IPC-IG on 12-13 April in Brasilia, Brazil.
We invite you to participate in this discussion and reflect about the following issues:
- What is the role of the emerging countries in shaping world politics?

- How can India, Brazil and South Africa strengthen cooperation in key issues on the global agenda?

- In which ways an improved policy dialogue among developing countries can contribute to the implementation of effective policies towards the achievement of inclusive growth and human development?
