Event will gather experts to reflect upon forms of academic cooperation between India, Brazil and South Africa
São Paulo, 15 February 2011 – The Brazilian Center for Analysis and Planning (CEBRAP) organises today in São Paulo the workshop “India, Brazil & South Africa -Evidence and perspectives of international cooperation“. Researchers from IPC-IG, Ms. Leisa Perch and Mr. Fabio Veras, were invited to join other experts to identify key points for the elaboration of a common research agenda from the three countries. The event is part of the 2009 collaborative project “State Society Relations in India, Brazil and South Africa – IBSA” and has the support of the Institute of Development Studies (IDS – University of Sussex, England), the African Center for Citizenship and Development (University of the Western Cape, South Africa) and the Society for Participatory Research in Asia (PRIA, India).
Some topics to be addressed:
• How is it possible to expand the already existing academic cooperation between India, Brazil and
South Africa beyond the mere exchange of knowledge and public policy-expertise?
• Can we think about more integrated forms of academic interchange, on which researchers from the
three countries work together in themes common interest?
• Which topics, methods and procedures can be explored in the analysis of structural challenges in
the three nations – such as enduring inequality or the proper offer of health and other public
