For BRICS watchers in general and anyone interested in the future of India in particular, twenty-two scholars of international repute have produced one of the most comprehensive volumes on India’s role in the evolving global order: Shaping the Emerging World.

In particular 40 countries, including India, made gains on their human development index scores between 1990 and 2012. Several factors, including integration with the world economy and enhanced South-South cooperation, contributed to the improvement in human development.
