The book illustrates the mission of law and legal frameworks in theory and in practice of BRICS activities and highlights what law means for the BRICS countries’ successful cooperation.'

'This book advocates 'BRICS for bridges not walls' and closes a gap in scholarship and academic debate by providing a (not yet duly considered) legal perspective of BRICS cooperation - one of the many reasons it deserves to be read. This book is a very interesting read, a worthwhile acquisition and a unique reference book for academics, government officials, legal practitioners, researchers and students who work in the area of global governance.'

‘Only on the basis of a legal foundation can BRICS continue its evolution towards an ever-more cooperative, interrelated, and ultimately maybe even integrated community of states. Pointing this out most clearly and providing illuminating and inspiring insight into the complexities of the BRICS realities, the book provides an invaluable resource and reference for scholars, practitioners, and anybody interested in international and global governance - under a political, an economic, and most importantly: a legal perspective.’
