Abstract

The paper is based on results within the framework of the project “The vision of Europe in the world” as supported by the 7th European Framework Programme; and in particular on a survey carried out on undergraduate students from 18 countries. The work concerns specific features of the world geopolitical vision characterising respondents from large countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China – the BRIC countries), as set against the place of these countries in the ’globalspace of flows’ after Manuel Castells.

Keywords: world geopolitical vision, BRIC countries, geographical images, perception
