Observer Research Foundation (ORF), a member think tank of the Economic Policy Forum (EPF), and Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS) co-hosted the 8th BRICS Academic Forum from 19-22 September, 2016, in India. Back-to-back to the official event, ORF and RIS, in partnership with EPF, the American Center and the Center for Rising Powers and Global Development (CRPD) co-organized the “Indian Think Tank Dialogue on Rising Powers” in the same venue. EPF invited South African researchers from the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) and Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) to join the dialogue in sessions such as financing sustainble development, energy, connectivity, and infrastructure to share results and preliminary results of EPF’s policy initiatives. All participants also joined the BRICS Academic Forum as speakers or observers.
