Abstract

Earlier this year, the South African Cabinet designated the HSRC as the incubator of the South African BRICS Think Tank for the 2013/14 financial year. In this capacity it is supported by the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) and the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). What led to this development, and why is it important? Michael Cosser explains.
