UNESCO and the BRICS

A variety of political actors are involved in the current negotiations about the Millennium Development Goals and the Education for All Goals after 2015. Maybe the role of new philantropists and the emphasis of some lobbies on the potential of public-private partnerships have provided the most telling evidence of this growing complexity. However, this is not the whole story, since governments themselves are aligning their policies in new ways. A clear illustration of these new alliances is the interest of BRICS in coordinating their education policies, as their recent meeting with UNESCO clearly shows. This is a noticeable event not only because of the international relevance, and the increasing participation in first-line conflicts, of Brazil, Russia, China, India and South Africa, but also because of the disparate socio-economic and educational development of these five countries.
