Southern African Security Review 2020

18 May 2021

This fourth edition of the Southern African Security Review (SASR) explores how mediation and conflict transformation relate to peace and security processes in Southern Africa. The publication consolidates the reflections from regional security dialogues between academics and practitioners that the Southern African Defence and Security Management (SADSEM) network and the Maputo Office of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES) have co-hosted. The publication focuses on two interrelated themes: African mediation, and African capacity to support and promote the range of mediation and peacebuilding activities, interrogating their potential to transform conflicts.

The book has been edited by:

  • Gilbert Khadiagala, Jan Smuts Professor of International Relations and Director of the African Centre for the Study of the United States (ACSUS) at the University of the Witwatersrand.
  • Dimpho Deleglise, Associate Research Fellow at UNU-CRIS. She holds a Doctorate from the University of the Witwatersrand and was previously with the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) as a senior researcher.
