    Chapter Two: South Africa’s image problem in Africa

    25 January 2018. 

    For the West, South Africa is Africa's most important and progressive actor. Yet, many other African states resent Pretoria's paternalistic role and suspect it of using Africa as a vehicle for its own global self-promotion. This chapter examines South Africa's numerous image problems on the continent, resulting from both its economic and corporate expansionism, as well as its ongoing domestic struggles with corruption scandals and xenophobic attacks.

    Iran under Rouhani: increasing constraint

    10 August 2017.  Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, though easily re-elected last May, faces a more confrontational United States, a more aggressive Saudi Arabia, and lower expectations of economic benefits from the nuclear deal than he did in his first term. These factors are emboldening hardliners in Iran's non-elected institutions, who are likely to constrain Rouhani's reformist agenda in both the domestic and international arenas.
