South Africa in Africa

The Post-Apartheid Era

Edited by: Adekeye Adebajo, Adebayo Adedeji, Chris Landsberg

In this rigorous and policy-relevant book, a diverse group of Pan-African scholars examine South Africa's post-apartheid foreign policy, arguing that an effective foreign policy can only be built on a strong domestic base. The authors assess key challenges of regional leadership for South Africa, addressing traditional issues of leadership, military and economic power, and less conventional foreign policy concerns, such as land conflicts and HIV/AIDS. In detailed case studies, the authors describe South Africa's role in the development of the AU (African Union) and NEPAD (New Partnership for Africa's Development), and the country's relations with strategic countries in West, Southern, and North Africa, the Great Lakes region, and the Horn of Africa.
