This session will shed light on the ways in which gender inequalities, discrimination and economic injustices are propagated through policies and investments promoted by International Financial Institutions (IFIs) and multilateral formations such as the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) bloc.

The BRICS remains significant in global, regional and multilateral settings. Its greatest institutional outcome has arguably been the New Development Bank (NDB). The integration of a feminist agenda of the South into the BRICS policies and institutions such as the NDB is vital to achieve this vision of justice and equality. Therefore, as BRICS Feminist Watch, we engage with BRICS and the NDB to advocate for gender equality and social justice lens to its functioning. At this event, panelists will spotlight the role of IFIs in BRICS countries within the larger context of demonstrating that economic growth alone is insufficient to address the 12 Critical Areas of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action.

Mandarin, Nepali Sign Language, Portuguese and Spanish interpretation will be available.
