Abstract

South-South cooperation is, generally speaking, an academic construct that focuses on relations between multilateral organizations, collaboration between countries, and issues that derive from the BRICS. The driver for these questions involves development as a form of interdependence. There is also a human side to this issue. After all, interdependencies evolve not only through diplomatic brokering but also through the presence of one people in the nation of another. For this reason, migration can be favorable towards South-South cooperation, even though there is an objective basis for concern as to whether the migration of workers – along with goods – enhances cooperation or whether it provokes a competitive element.
