The common belief about American Foreign Policy has changed its course since the end of the Cold War. However, there are main characteristics of the American Foreign Policy, which remained the same since the foundation of the country. Foreign policy makers of the US shared the belief of American exceptionism. Besides, since the US became a major player in the international arena, the policy makers remained out of international agreements that may limit their freedom of action in international arena. If they become a part of an international institution, they made sure that the rules of the game were set by the US, without jeopardising the freedom of the US. In other words, America preferred unilateral action and multilateralism for it meant only burden sharing, instead of the sharing of decision making power. This situation became less acceptable for the European Allies with the end of the Cold War and the US was accused of usurping its power. The criticism focuses more on the two republican presidents than the Clinton Administration. So the question is, is it true?
This book is very useful for those who want to know what the World Trade Organization is all about. It provides a third world country's view of international organizations in general and economic international organization in partucular. The author adopted a new approach and angle in analyzing the collective decision-making process of World Trade Organization by constructing a four-element test (Inclusiveness-Efficiency- Transparency-Fairness). He successfully managed to pin down the main faults and paradoxes of the World Trade Organization's institutional process namely the decision-making processes both formal and informal. The author also, with great level of success, managed to tackle this complex issue by putting forward a rather novel proposition suggesting that regionalism and multilateralism are two complementary rather than conflicting concepts. He argues that regional arrangements has a constructive role to play in the multilateral trading system and the world Trade Organization can benefit from regional organization by including them into its decision-making process and institutions.
The richness of public and academic discourses on the past, present and future direction of South Africa's role in Africa and the world suggests that as a sub-discipline of politics, South African foreign policy is ready for a systematic and regular appraisal in the form of a series of publications that the Institute for Global Dialogue will call South African Foreign Policy Review. This is also because constant changes in international and domestic circumstances impinge on the management and analysis of South Africa's foreign policy. This, the first review provides an important opportunity to build on existing foreign policy works in order to take stock of the road already travelled in the past decade or so. This is crucial in laying some basis for anticipating the country's future role, and considering the opportunities and challenges, which future volumes of the review will consider. This volume provides a wide-ranging appraisal of the relationship between stated foreign policy goals and actual outputs and outcomes, an assessment of how foreign policy has actually been operationalized and implemented. To this end, common themes in South African foreign policy provide the framework for the first review. These include foreign policy decision-making; soft power dynamics in the foreign policy's strategic calculus; diplomatic tools used - economic diplomacy, peace diplomacy and paradiplomacy; South Africa's relations with key states in Africa, in the global south and in the global north; South Africa's approach to Africa multilateral, global multilateralism/governance. The review hopes to stimulate further discussion and thinking on the challenges confronted, and the future shape and direction of South Africa's foreign policy.
