Multinationals on the periphery
DaimlerChrysler South Africa, human capital upgrading and regional economic development
Jo Lorentzen

Utilising the DaimlerChrysler human resources upgrade in one of South Africa’s least developed provinces as the basis, this is a well-developed case study of the relationship between human capital in host economies and international capital inflows. It describes how DaimlerChrysler upgraded human resources in its East London plant where the company manufactures the Mercedes C-Class model for export. Lorentzen explores the extent and depth of the upgrading along and beyond the automotive supply chain, and its repercussions on local education and training institutions. Finally, he analyses how foreign direct investment and local industrial development interact in the short and medium term, and hypothesises as to the possible longer-term outcomes in the absence of proper regional economic planning.

South Africa’s role in conflict resolution and peacemaking in Africa
Conference proceedings
Roger Southall (ed)

Since its transition to democracy in 1994, South Africa has become increasingly drawn into the resolution of conflicts and the promotion of peace and stability on the wider African continent. This has followed from the high reputation of its own negotiated settlement as a model for other conflict torn countries to emulate, the iconic status of Nelson Mandela as a master of reconciliation and forgiveness, and not least the sense in Pretoria that South Africa has a moral obligation to ‘repay’ Africa for the sins of apartheid and that it has some considerable capacity, military and economic, to do so.
