Abstract:This paper examines the nature of regional collaborative security and mutual defence, their application at subregional and regional organizational level and the implications for the Southern African Development Community (SADC). It starts by examining some key concepts related to security cooperation within regions and subregions, and then develops a set of questions related to the nature and character of regional security collaboration. In addressing these questions, it examines concrete manifestations of these principles through actual (sub)regional collaborative security organizations in the developing world. Turning to SADC, it draws some implications and lessons learned from global practices, and concludes that many of the challenges SADC faces are similar to those in other regional organizations in the developing world.
