Russia, BRICS, and the Disruption of Global Order

Russia's leadership in establishing the BRICS group (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) is emblematic of its desire to end US hegemony and rewrite the rules of the international system. Rachel S. Salzman tells the story of why Russia broke with the West, how BRICS came together, why the group is emblematic of Russia's challenge to the existing global order, and how BRICS has changed since its debut. The BRICS group of non-Western states with emerging economies is held together by a shared commitment to revising global economic governance and strict noninterference in the internal affairs of other countries. BRICS is not exclusively a Russian story, but understanding the role of BRICS in Russian foreign policy is critical to understanding the group's mission. In a time of alienation from the Euro-Atlantic world, BRICS provides Russia with much needed political support and legitimacy. While the longterm cohesion of the group is uncertain, BRICS stands as one of Vladimir Putin's signature international accomplishments. This book is essential reading for scholars and policymakers interested in Russian foreign policy, the BRICS group, and global governance.

Review

"Rachel Salzman provides an invaluable detailed analysis of the BRICS's place in Russia's "complicated relationship with the dominant international system." Before 2014 Russian policy vacillated between providing a bridge between rising and established powers and revision of the international order; Russian annexation of Crimea marked a shift to outright revisionism. This contrasts with India and China having benefited enormously from the existing globalization context, and favoring less sweeping adjustments. Salzman demonstrates both the groups' common interest in revising international institutions and the constraints on achieving major change. The final chapters discuss shifts in priorities in India and China as well as Russia, as all three increasingly look to other regional organizations." — Harley Balzer, Professor Emeritus, Georgetown University

"Rachel Salzman has written a terrific book - insightful, admirably balanced, and sharply written. She cuts through the self-serving rhetoric to show that Moscow's interest in the BRICS is superficial and above all instrumental. This framework is less a template for global governance than a tool to promote Russia as a great power, and consequently to be emphasized or marginalized according to circumstance." — Bobo Lo, Brookings Institution
