The problem of peripheral development of the BRICS countries
The problem of peripheral development of the BRICS countries
Denis Degterev devoted his research to how the problem of peripheral development of the participating countries is overcome in the framework of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). Using the example of a network analysis of the top 5 partners of each of the BRICS countries, the author showed a network of current interaction among the participating countries.

The network analysis itself is a method for analyzing the start and end dates of the unrealized parts of the project, which allows linking the implementation of various activties and processes over time, having received a forecast of the total duration of the entire project.

According to the results of his research, Denis concluded that the maximum values of centrality indicators in the BRICS trade network are occupied by the PRC, slightly lower indicators are held by the USA and Germany, which fits into the concept of the formation of “new bipolarity”, but to a lesser extent indicates the active development of integration of countries members of the BRICS and the strengthening of multipolarity. In conclusion, the author noted the prospects for further research on this topic and for conducting a network analysis of the interaction of the BRICS countries in the field of international educational cooperation, in the field of international air traffic (network of flights between countries), as well as in international finance (correspondent banking system).

Reference: The Association of International Studies is one of the oldest and largest professional interdisciplinary associations of international researchers studying transnational and global issues. The convention of the association annually gathers more than six thousand scientists, practitioners, policy experts, private sector workers and independent researchers from more than 30 countries of the world: Germany, Russia, Mexico, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, France, Spain, Italy, Romania, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Sweden, UK, USA, etc. This year, the key theme of the convention was the state of affairs in the science of international relations. Denis Degterev, Head of the Department of Theory and History of International Relations, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, RUDN University, presented the study “Network Analysis of Cooperation within BRICS: Operationalizing the World-Systems Theory” at the 60th annual convention of the Association for International Studies “Re-visioning International Studies: Innovation and Progress »In Toronto (Canada).

RUDN chemist synthesized gold-based electrocatalysts

A RUDN chemist has synthesized an electrocatalyst based on gold nanoparticles with organic ligands, which can trigger both hydrogen production reactions and oxygen reduction reactions in fuel cells. The yield of products with the new catalyst was twice as high as when using a traditional platinum-based catalyst.

RUDN University chemist discovered a way to quadruple the speed of toluene photooxidation

A chemist from RUDN University has proposed a new way to control toluene photooxidation using composite catalysts — artificial diamond and titanium dioxide. The discovery refutes the previously existing physical hypothesis about the process of photooxidation of toluene.

RUDN University biologist developed new model for analyzing photosynthesis in vivo

A RUDN University biologist has developed a model for the analysis of photosynthesis in vivo. This method allows you to calculate the absorption coefficient of light by chlorophyll, based on its reflectivity. Analysis of light absorption is important for assessing ecosystem productivity, which affects the state of the biosphere and the global climate.
