2004: SA's year of peacekeeping
The Mail & Guardian has a good article summarising SA's role in peacekeeping in 2004. It quotes political analyst Prof John Stremlau's conclusion that:
"South Africa's role as mediator in the continent's trouble spots was proof of its commitment to the New Partnership for Africa's Development (Nepad) and its standing in the global community."
Well worth a read.
