Description

If the 20th century was "America's century", to whom does the 21st belong? Much is touted in the name of the new global economic, cultural, political and technological alliances signalled by the acronym, BRIC, among Brazil, Russia, India and China. This unit presupposes that, beyond a mere focus on economics, important global political shifts towards and in Latin America are in evidence. Who and which powers are driving this change? What do these tendencies mean regionally and globally?
