The present publication gathers reports and analyses on the G5 countries of Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa. They examine how these important emerging powers are positioning themselves on issues of global economic and political governance, the possibilities of an international social order, as well as questions on the system of values that guide these countries in their actions. The contributors from the G5 countries give their point of view on already existing structures and the kinds of reform required.
