Great Decisions is a foreign affairs program sponsored by the Foreign Policy Association and moderated by Kirk Ressler. A short film is followed by a discussion.  

The African National Congress (ANC) party has governed South Africa since the end of apartheid in 1994.  But the party today suffers from popular frustration over official corruption and economic stagnation.  Given America’s history of opportunistic engagements with Africa, there are few prospects for a closer relationship between the two countries.  Meanwhile, a weaker ANC could lead to political fragmentation in this relatively new democracy.  [SL301]
