This article explores the impact of emerging economies in international affairs. The arrival of the Bric's countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) has changed the map of the global order and the strategies to project hegemonic power. Could the Bric eclipse the economic power of the richest countries of the world? What are the main strategies of Bric to project its power worldwide? These and other questions are analysed in this text taking into account the new geopolitical scenario of the twenty-first century.
