Abstract

The nature of South Africa's constitutional democracy is taken as a starting point in determining the interests of South Africa as a nation. But the author asks if these socioeconomic and political interests adequately provided for in the country's international relations strategies so as to advance South Africa's constitutional values within BRICS.
