New Book Examines Impact of Civil Society on Policy in BRICS Countries

On October 9, the Public Policy Department presented a new book entitled ‘Policy impact of civil society in BRICS countries: best practices influencing policy-making’, which was published by HSE with support from Oxfam under the EU funded project ‘Empowering CSO Networks in an Unequal Multi-Polar World’.

The project’s successful completion was made possible through collaboration of the Interlegal Foundation with BRICS experts and various NGO networks – both in Russia and internationally. In analyzing ground-level civil society activities in BRICS countries, the book explores the effectiveness and impact of civil society in influencing state policy in these five countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa). The book also assesses the capacity of civil society in designing policy agendas in different fields of governance.

International Master’s-level students from the Public Policy Department were closely involved in the project, contributing not only to pre-seminar activity but effectively to the civil society impact in each of the five BRICS countries as well.

This book is of interest both to both civil society scholars and practitioners who are looking to learn from a comparative analysis of different self-organization practices among citizens. It is also relevant to the broader research community with its comparison of BRICS countries and their societies.
