With preparations for the 9th BRICS Summit under the Chinese Presidency in progress, question marks on the future of the BRICS are repeatedly raised. The following symposium, organised into a panel discussion, breakaway sessions, and plenary, sought to explore some of the future scenarios of the BRICS in changing global dynamics. It looked into existing power dynamics in the grouping, with Russia, China, and India vying for influence, while South Africa and Brazil seemingly lagging behind as they confront various domestic challenges. Bringing together over 50 stakeholders from government, academia, think tanks, civil society, business, labour, embassies, and other non-government organisations, this symposium also considered the potential impact of closer relations between the US and Russia under the Trump Presidency, while addressing the question of a consolidated BRICS agenda and enhanced BRICS strategic cooperation and coordination of regional agendas.
