South Africa: the case of a failed state partition

Auteur :
CHRISTOPHER, A.J.

Description :
In South Africa the White minority sought to retain political power in the face of majority African demands for equality, by means of state partition. The government attempted to create new states for linguistically defined groups within the African population, without resolving the problems involved in creating new nations or drawing state boundaries. The lack of legitimacy and the degree of coertion applied in the policy's enforcement ensured failure and the re-establishment of the unitary state.
