The workshop aims at providing a thorough analysis of economic and geopolitical impacts related to the rise of the new emerging countries. In the context of the 2008 financial crisis, oil scarcity and environmental challenges, this analysis is more than needed. The morning and early afternoon of November 6th will provide a review of the BRIC countries: Brazil, Russia, India and China.

A roundtable will take place in the mid afternoon to conclude on the rise
of the BRIC countries and their impact on the current developed countries.
