Abstract

This chapter provides a critical appraisal of the process of regional demarcation which took place between May and November 1993 in South Africa. The chapter is organised into two main sections. The first section focuses on the process of regional demarcation. Issues examined include the nature and content of submissions to and public hearings held by the Commission on the Demarcation / Delimitation of States, Provinces and regions. The second section provides a critical evaluation of the process of regional demarcation by comparing the South African experience with that of Namibia and Cuba.
