Previous projects: New Powers for global change?

The “New Powers for global change?” project explored the self-perceptions, roles, motivations and strategies of the so-called “new powers” in the international order.

From 2006 to 2007 stakeholders from Brazil, China, India, Egypt, Mexico, South Africa and Turkey engaged in national and regional dialogues over the foreign policies of these new powers and the impact of their rise on the multilateral systems for global governance.

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung deems it crucial to strengthen effective global governance mechanisms to address global problems. In this respect, it was key to engage the new powers to find a common basis for cooperation. The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung believes that through dialogue, it will be possible to identify converging interests and potential conflicts, define areas of cooperation and to devise new mechanisms for coordination.

A series of publications analyzed the goals, strategies and policies of these countries:
