Southern Africa in New International Order

The relations between southern African states in the post-apartheid era will evolve at the dictates of the emerging world order, and that the fulcrum of this evolution will continue to rest with Pretoria, HUNDRED years after Gandhiji set his foot over South African soil, racial discrimination and apartheid have been finally eliminated with the installation of a non-racial government in South Africa. The termination of .the apartheid system in South Africa and the end of international cold war will decisively change the political dialogue in the African continent. The first part of this essay traces the growth of interdependence and democratisation in the international community as well as in southern Africa. The second part discusses the relations between southern African states in the emerging international order. My essay argues that the relations between southern African states in the post-apartheid era will evolve at the dictates of the emerging world order, and that the fulcrum of this evolution will continue to rest with Pretoria.
