How successful have southern African states been in dealing with the major issues that have faced the region in recent years? What can be done to produce more cohesive and effective region-building in southern Africa? This original and wide-ranging volume, which draws on an interdisciplinary team of African and African-based specialists, addresses the key political, socio-economic and security challenges facing southern Africa today. These include HIV/AIDS, migration and xenophobia, land grabbing and climate change, and the role of the UN, the EU, the USA, China and other external actors in the region. It also looks at the Southern African Customs Union, development finance institutions, and issues of gender and peacebuilding. In doing so, the book goes to the heart of analysing the effectiveness of SADC and other regional organizations, suggesting how region-building in southern Africa may be compared with similar attempts elsewhere in Africa and other parts of the world.
