Title:South Africa, Africa and the European Union: negotiating an African Renaissance?
Authors:Main, LynnaiaISNI

Periodical:Indicator South Africa
Geographic term:South Africa
Subjects:European Union
Lomé Convention
Abstract:The African Renaissance concept is central to the ANC's foreign policy. The present article examines what the concept means to the ANC and how it might impact on trade relationships between the EU, South Africa and the rest of the region. Bilateral trade talks between South Africa and the EU have been characterized by tough negotiations, with South Africa showing an independence surprising to the EU. Although other SADC nations are apprehensive of a bilateral agreement between South Africa and the EU, South Africa has rejected certain EU proposals for the explicit purpose of protecting its regional partners. The precedent the South Africa/EU talks establish should inform the Lomé negotiations, which could make or break the African Renaissance. Bibliogr., sum.
