    Regional Powers Network

    How is the rise of actors such as Brazil, China, India or South Africa influencing regional and global power shifts? This question is at the heart if the regional Powers Network, coordinated by the GIGA. The network consists of leading European and Non-European research institutions. The participating researchers have analysed emergent regional powers across policy fields and regions – particularly in Asia, but also in Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East.
