About the Book
The new edition examines the evolving relationship between the two democratic and emerging economies of Asia and Africa. By virtue of a democratic political system and sound economic foundation, South Africa is bound to play a decisive role at the regional and global levels, because it is a member of all the important international forum like the commonwealth, Non-Aligned Movement and the United Nations Organisation. India has maintained close and cordial relations with South Africa ever since the Indians migrated to that country, especially since 1652. Despite economic and political discrimination, India has played a decisive role in dismantling the South Africa’s system of apartheid. The case study of Africa fund clearly establishes this fact. India and South Africa has played a significant role in formulation and implementation of the agenda of the Non-Aligned Movement.
