Cape Town, South Africa, 14-16 October 2015

The Conference is seeks to explore how multilevel government – a dominant feature in all five BRICS countries – is impacted on and, in turn, may impact on the BRICS’s economic and social development initiative. Of particular importance is the role of domestic intergovernmental fiscal relations and metropolitan cities.

The conference will be an engagement between academics, thinks tanks and officials of the BRICS countries, from 14 to 16 October 2015, on the campus of the University of the Western Cape, Cape Town, South Africa. The proceedings will subsequently be published as a peer-reviewed book.
