Foreign Policy Posture in Post-Apartheid South Africa: Consistencies and Ambiguities
Foreign policy and domestic policy feed into each other. To a large degree, the latter informs the former. This book demonstrates the relationship between the two, paying particularly close attention to how South Africa envisioned its foreign policy during the negotiation process. Importantly, it spells out how South Africa’s foreign policy has evolved since the early 1990s.
The critics of South Africa’s foreign policy often question the motives behind the country’s involvement in African and global affairs. The contributions here demonstrate the complex nature of foreign policy making, approaching the subject both from a broad theoretical perspective and specifically through empirical case studies. The book will appeal to political scientists, historians, policy practitioners, international relations specialists, and government officials and their advisors, as well as international relations theorists.
