South Africa's ongoing incorporation into the international political economy as a global middle-power--a "bridgebuilder" between the global hegemons and those reluctant to follow their lead--has created in it a post-apartheid foreign policy that has been a bundle of contradictions and ambiguities. Through case studies of interaction with multilateral groupings and organizations, Taylor examines South African foreign policy during its ambivalent re-entry into the globalized neo-liberal political economy.

The first two decades of South Africa's democracy have seen a growing breadth and depth in the analysis of South Africa's foreign policy. This second volume of the South African Foreign Policy Review considers the continuity and change in South Africa's foreign policy over the course of two decades, with a particular focus on the more recent approach under the Zuma administration. This includes a closer look at the principles, practices and partnerships that shape South Africa's international relations and is aimed at supporting knowledge for reflection on South Africa's conduct internationally and for anticipating ways in which the country may approach international relations and foreign policy going forward. It discusses the foreign policy making and the nature of South Africa's diplomatic relations with Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, Latin America, Europe and North America, as well as the country's participation in multilateral diplomacy in Africa, the global South and at the United Nations (UN) to expand the discussion and deepen the debate on the future shape and direction of South Africa's foreign policy.

South Africa is the most industrialized power in Africa. It was rated the continent's largest economy in 2016 and is the only African member of the G20. It is also the only strategic partner of the EU in Africa. Yet despite being so strategically and economically significant, there is little scholarship that focuses on South Africa as a regional hegemon. This book provides the first comprehensive assessment of South Africa's post-Apartheid foreign policy. Over its 23 chapters - -and with contributions from established Africa, Western, Asian and American scholars, as well as diplomats and analysts - the book examines the current pattern of the country's foreign relations in impressive detail. The geographic and thematic coverage is extensive, including chapters on: the domestic imperatives of South Africa's foreign policy; peace-making; defence and security; bilateral relations in Southern, Central, West, Eastern and North Africa; bilateral relations with the US, China, Britain, France and Japan; the country's key external multilateral relations with the UN; the BRICS economic grouping; the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group (ACP); as well as the EU and the World Trade Organization (WTO). An essential resource for researchers, the book will be relevant to the fields of area studies, foreign policy, history, international relations, international law, security studies, political economy and development studies.

Foreign policy is widely regarded as one of the post-apartheid government's major areas of achievement, yet remains one of the most challenging. In this volume, leading scholars provide critical assessments of the conduct of South African foreign policy since 1994 against the background of six principles articulated by Nelson Mandela in a celebrated article published in the journal Foreign Affairs in 1993. While South African foreign policy has become wide-ranging and complex, these reflective contributions demonstrate a remarkable adherence to these principles. Aimed at stimulating thinking among policy-makers, analysts, and students, this volume will rank as one of the most authoritative analyses, and one of the most complete intellectual records, of South Africa's foreign policy during the crucial first decade following its transition to democracy.

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.

This book considers the identity, direction, and intentions embodied in post-apartheid South African Foreign Policy. It aims to deepen the understanding of this evolving post-apartheid foreign policy through an exploration of the nature and trajectory of key bilateral relationships from both the global 'South' (Brazil, China, Iran, the AU) and 'North' (Japan and the UK). This window on the country's international relations enriches understanding of the normative and structural factors that influence not only South African foreign policy, but also those of the 'emerging middle powers' as they seek to position themselves as influential actors in international affairs. By sketching the contours of key South African relationships, the contributors offer illuminating insights into the cross-pressures shaping South African foreign policy. In addition, they also add depth to the emerging middle power concept by exploring four areas where the tendencies and tensions of emerging middle power foreign policies are apparent: regionalism, multilateralism, reform of global governance, and approach to moral leadership. This book was previously published as a special issue of Commonwealth & Comparative Politics.

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.
