BRICS Parma Research Group

 

“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 Countries.
