SAIIA International Affairs Bulletin, vol. 3, no. 1, 1979

The first article focuses on the first elections in Rhodesia that allowed all Africans above the age of 18 to vote. The next article has one premise: the best guide to a government's response to external stimuli, pressures and incentives, lies in a close examination of the official decision-making system. A Mid-term assessment of the Carter administration’s policies in Africa attempts a personal perspective on a most ambitious topic: an assessment of President Carter's African policies two years after he entered office. The article on the Helsinki declaration focuses on the Russian threat and the implications of the declaration. Baron von der Ropp looks at territorial partitioning as the road to peace and what alternatives are available.
