Abstract

National policy documents suggest South Africa's international engagements are shaped by a commitment to multilateralism and a desire to build solidarity and co-operation among the Global South countries. But what is the public's attitude towards foreign policy, Steven Gordon, Benjamin Roberts and Jare Struwig take a look at national interests, government's foreign policy evaluation, and foreign policy preferences.
