This paper investigates the basic premises of the BRICS group, and its capacity for generating common values, as a precondition for acquiring a political coherency, both internally and externally. Also, this paper elaborates the existence of a value dissonancy, both inside and outside the BRICS compared to the values of the current liberal world order. Considering that, it is concluded that BRICS does not possess any preconditions for creation of its own common value system, but it refers to the United Nations values, and thus taking a role of derivative holder of values. Also, it is concluded that the BRICS cooperation is an important phenomenon in terms of future development of international relations, especially in terms of their decentralization, pluralization, and democratization. Key words: BRICS, values, liberal order
