The aim of the project is therefore to contribute, through critical research and dialogue, towards a nuanced understanding of contemporary South-South cooperation. In particular, it seeks to appreciate the basis on which countries in the South cooperate or compete with one another, and the implication of these dynamics for South Africa’s policy.
The specific objectives of the project include:
- To contribute to a better understanding of the importance of the changing dynamics of South-South cooperation.
- To rethink the implications of South-South cooperation for South Africa’s foreign policy with a view to advocating an appropriate response to changing dynamics.
- To provide valuable insights into the implications of these dynamics for South Africa’s global development agenda including development cooperation.
