Abstract:This book contains contributions that have evolved out of the presentations and discussions that the Concerned Africans Forum (CAF) has hosted since its inception. The CAF was established during the crisis in Libya, starting a debate about the growing tendency of the 'militarization of diplomacy' and regime change and the abuse of the UNSC to achieve such objectives. Since then many issues have been adressed, offering a different perspective on international politics and politics in South Africa. Contents: Section 1.
