Abstract

The present international scenario is witnessing the emergence of new actors and new coalitions, like the India, Brazil, South Africa (IBSA) Dialogue Forum or Brazil, Russia, India, the People’s Republic of China, South Africa (BRICS). South Africa is the only African country to participate in both groups. It will be particularly interesting to see the role it will play in the years to come and to speculate on how it will affect the future of other African international players.
