Author:Muller, MarieISNI
Periodical:South African Yearbook of International Law
Geographic term:South Africa
Subject:foreign policy
Abstract:South African diplomacy today is being shaped by the interplay between ongoing changes in the country's domestic political and social environment and the evolving post-Cold War international environment. The more recent developments include the implementation of South African foreign policy through peaceful means and the employment of official representatives at various levels. The author addresses a number of aspects of South African diplomacy, including the impact of certain issues and incidents in South African foreign policy on the way in which South Africa communicates with the rest of the world; recent developments in the South African Department of Foreign Affairs, its structure, problems encountered, personalities involved and the deployment of South African missions abroad; the use of direct communications and technology; official visits abroad and visitors to South Africa, with special emphasis on summitry; and South Africa's involvement in international organizations, conferences and agreements.
