dc.description.abstract This study focuses its attention on the strategies of the OAU in their determined bid to isolate South Africa from the international community. This study attempts to show how and why the African states tried to isolate South Africa. This selection is done in order to portray the special role the African states played in the ostracism of South Africa from the community of nations. The objective is to analyse the strategies and the role of Africa, 2 individually and collectively, and to demonstrate the extent to which they were committed to the implementation of this isolation campaign. This study will try to give, as far as possible, a balanced perspective of the issues surrounding Africa's campaign of isolation. The present study is, therefore, a serious attempt at a study of that campaign. In this connection, attention will also be focused on questions such as: What motivated the OAU to interact in the campaign to isolate South Africa? What internal factors determined Africa's strategies, successes and failures? What role did the frontline states play in the isolation campaign? Why did Mozambique and South Africa conclude the Nkomati Agreement in 1984? Was this agreement a deviation of the principles of isolation? What was the reaction of the OAU to the -signing of this agreement? To what extent had the isolation campaign succeeded from Africa's point of view? en_US
