Society in today's world is rapidly changing, which is one of the reasons for creating the association of BRIC countries. They are linked into the association becouse of economy indicators, esspecialy the indicator of economic growth. BRIC countries have the potencial for crating the so called “new world order” in which we would not live under the hegemony of the US. As I mentioned before, the BRIC countries arised because of the economy indicators, but geographical indicators, such as the size of a country and number of population, are important too. Good economy of a country is the key to its successful defense policy, since the latter is very depended on the former. Therefore, in this diploma thesis I focused on analysing the three selected – in my opinion the most suitable – defense indicators, which can best illustrate the overall picture of millitary power, and than compered them between BRIC countries. In conclusion of this diploma thesis I am finding out which BRIC country is currently the second (to the US) military superpower, and what is to be expected troughtout the next few years.
