Abstract:In this article, a slightly amended version of the written testimony presented 23 March 1988 to the Subcommittees on Africa and International Economic Policy and Trade of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the US House of Representatives on the issue of 'New sanctions against South Africa', the author argues that the only way that the South African government can be persuaded to give up its racist policies would seem to be when it is convinced that such policies can no longer secure the interests of white South Africa. As sanctions raise the cost to South Africa of operating its apartheid system and adversely affect the well-being of those who benefit from it, it can be responsibly argued that they have a chance of moving the South African authorities in the direction of change towards the establishment of democracy.
