"BRICS Parma" is an
observatory of BRICS Countries legal systems and their legal
development, with the BRICS acronym standing for Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
While focusing mainly on legal aspects, the observatory is open to
political, economic, social and cultural analysis and is strongly
characterised by a comparative approach.
BRICS Parma has been created in 2011 with a first series of seminars
held in the frame of the course of Public Comparative Law in the
Department of Law at Parma University.
The observatory is coordinated by Prof. Lucia Scaffardi and its overall
objective is to monitor, to analyse, to study comparatively and to
foster debates on the existing and future legal networks among BRICS
