Event in brief:

US relations with the BRIC countries. The growing influence of the BRIC nations, and their ability to project political, economic and military power, is one of the most hotly debated issues in international relations. From new geopolitical flashpoints, to energy and resource security and their influence in international decision-making, the BRICs are key players in today's international order. John Micklethwait will explain his thoughts on how the US should engage with the BRICs, before taking questions from the floor.
