Abstract:This volume contains papers that were presented at the 37th annual meeting of ANPOCS (Associação Nacional de Pós-Graduação e Pesquisa em Ciências Sociais), hosted in Águas de Lindoia, São Paulo (Brazil), in 2013. The conference brought together some 30 social scientists from the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). The papers were gathered under three umbrella's: I. Development and public policies in the BRICS; II. Contemporary transformations and re-assignment of political and cultural meaning in the BRICS; and III. Emergent powers and transformations in the international system. The same division into three parts is followed in the book. General chapters and chapters dealing with (South) Africa are: Part I: Social sciences and the BRICS (Tom Dwyer); The global position of South Africa as BRICS country (Freek Cronjé); Development public policies, emerging contradictions and prospects in the post-apartheid South Africa (Sultan Khan); Part II: Political-economic changes and the production of new categories of understanding in the BRICS (Antonádia Borges); South Africa: hopeful and fearful (Francis Nyamnjoh); Income security systems in comparative perspective: Brazil and South Africa (Maria Paula Gomes dos Santos); Part III: The BRICS in the international system: very relevant countries, but a group of limited importance (Eduardo Viola); Is the BRICS a harbinger of a new matrix of global governance in trade, energy and climate change? (Alexander Zhebit); South Africa in the international politics of climate and energy (Kathryn Hochstetler); Resource rents, resource nationalism and innovation policy: perspectives on Africa and the BRICS (Michael Kahn).
