Abstract: The Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa (BRICS) grouping has attracted much derision from commentators who argue that the five countries do not share a common purpose or identity.2 Indeed, even India’s Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, when recently asked about a possible merger between the India-Brazil-South Africa (IBSA) trilateral forum and the BRICS grouping, responded that, ‘IBSA has a personality of its own. It is three separate continents, three democracies. BRIC is a conception devised by Goldman Sachs. We are trying to put life into it’.3 This chapter examines the potential to put life into the BRICS, within the context of India’s foreign policy and the emergence of the Indo-Pacific region.
