An official presentation of the center “Expert Council on the participation of the Russian Federation in the BRICS association” took place at the Higher School of Economics. The council, in particular, will be responsible for information, analytical and expert support for the Russian chairmanship of the association in 2024.

The BRICS Expert Council was created in pursuance of instructions from the Government of the Russian Federation on the basis of the National Research University Higher School of Economics on the initiative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Finance of Russia. The Council will engage in expert-analytical and scientific activities on current issues of political, socio-economic and humanitarian cooperation in the association.

The head of the BRICS Expert Council, Vice-Rector of the National Research University Higher School of Economics Victoria Panova, emphasized that the university has received high confidence from the country’s leadership. “Today the Higher School of Economics is one of the leading Russian centers in the field of international educational, scientific and expert cooperation,” she noted. “The HSE has an exceptional range of expertise in these matters, and our staff are highly respected and have the highest reputations in their fields.”

Victoria Panova highlighted the primary role of the expert track in building effective interaction between the countries participating in the association along the “second track” of diplomacy.

“In 2024, a new chapter began in the history of BRICS. Russia, as the first chairman of the expanded BRICS, needs to ensure the smooth integration of new member countries into the work of the association. In BRICS, the “second track” is effectively developing – these are informal initiatives of academic, expert and civil communities that interact with government institutions. Our Expert Council will be responsible for coordinating the BRICS expert track in Russia from 2024,” she emphasized.

This year, the council will hold a number of expert events to collect recommendations to the leaders of the BRICS states on the development of comprehensive cooperation between the member countries of the association. The main results of the expert track will be presented at the BRICS Academic and Civil Forums, which will be held in Moscow on May 22–24 and July 3–4, respectively.

The presentation of the BRICS Expert Council took place in February at the Higher School of Economics within the framework of the strategic session “Russia’s Chairmanship in BRICS 2024: the role of the expert track.” Leading Russian experts and scientists from the National Research University Higher School of Economics, IMEMO RAS, RANEPA, MGIMO, Russian International Affairs Council, etc. took part in its work. The head of the Department for Economic and Humanitarian Cooperation in the BRICS interstate association of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spoke about the main priorities of the Russian presidency in BRICS Russia Liliya Rizvanova and Deputy Director of the Department of Multilateral Economic Cooperation and Special Projects of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia Evgenia Drozhashchikh.
