Title:Konfederale assosiasie van state of federasie as staatkundige toekomsbedeling in Suid(er)-Afrika: teoretiese perspektiewe vir die suid-afrikaanse party-politiek
Author:Venter, T.D.

Subjects:political philosophy
Abstract:This article attempts to isolate a precis of the theory underlying confederal associations of states and federal forms of government, to elucidate the policy standpoints of the most important South African political parties in this respect, including opinions expressed in reports in the South African press and enunciated by Black Homeland leaders, and finally to make an evaluation of the applicability of a federal formula in the plural South African context. Reference is furthermore made to a number of realities in the South African political situation, which must be seen as problematical in the immediate future. The conclusion is made that the solution for South Africa's many and complex problems lies along the road of a loose association or community of states, rather than in a federal formula. Notes. The article is in Afrikaans.
