Abstract: In 2003 India, Brazil and South Africa (IBSA) formalised a dialogue forum regarding shared international political concerns, including democracy, personal freedom and human rights. By doing so they created a new global justice discourse shedding light on the North South divide. Since its creation IBSA has gained greater influence in the global political order by increasing their presence in global institutions such as the World Trade Organisation and the United Nations. Acknowledging the difficulty of being accepted in large institutional councils (e.g. the UNSC) they have opted for a subtler approach and created diplomacy networks and steering committees. IBSA uses a soft power governance method known as orchestration to follow up on their founding document, the Brasilia Declaration. The IBSA initiative has sparked a new voice from the South which is challenging the current western dominance in international politics. The IBSA initiative aims to change the current course of international politics through international institutions. This article will delve into the method of orchestration and how IBSA uses it. This thesis will look at how IBSA uses orchestration theory to reach their goals.
