Chapter Summary

This chapter covers major domestic political developments, the foreign policy and socio-economic trends in Southern Africa - all related to developments in one calendar year. Zimbabwe remained among the top 'hot spots' that kept the sub-regional body, SADC, busy, although Madagascar emerged as a strong contender, albeit more from a distance, as a result of the overthrow of the government and the subsequent international non-recognition of the new president. The frequency of SADC meetings was also related to the situations in Zimbabwe and Madagascar, but did not produce any visible and concrete results.

Keywords: domestic politics; foreign policy; SADC; socioeconomic developments; Southern Africa
