In this issue, Smuts House notes starts by looking at South Africa’s activity beyond its borders and how Pretoria is involved in upsetting regional security. According to the notes, Pretoria’s security interests are best served by keeping neighbouring states cowed and meddling in their domestic affairs. The bulletin then gives three articles of papers presented at a private workshop on Foreign Policy concepts of West European countries towards Africa and consist of the British, Dutch and south African Foreign policies. Three book reviews then follow.
