The initiative aims to encourage a multi-sector exploration of synergies between global health, geopolitics and global development. The Editors of the journal Contemporary Politics invite high-quality, original submissions that present ‘tangible evidence’ of the BRICS contribution to global (dis) order, using a health lens for explaining or understanding broader interests and/or approaches of the BRICS for development cooperation. That evidence may draw on: the experiences of single BRICS countries, or indeed the foreign policy of individual BRICS countries; comparative analyses of two or more BRICS countries; or secondary analyses and discussion around any of the research questions identified above. Studies that seek to demonstrate trans-disciplinary synergies are especially welcome.
Please provide an abstract of between 100 and 150 words. Abstracts should include: a working title; a statement on methods; summary argument; tentative indication of findings; focus country/countries.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is 19th November 2012.
