Are times-a-changing for Portuguese foreign policy?

Pedro Seabra

Ever since the return to democracy Portugal has steadily pursued its external priorities, with almost no meaningful change occurring whenever the usual rotations of government took place. Traditionally structured around a trilateral axis -- namely European integration, transatlantic relations and Lusophone ties with Portuguese-speaking countries -- Portuguese foreign policy has consistently had an extremely strong internal backing over the years, which in turn allowed it to resist the fast-paced evolution of the surrounding international context and adapt to new geostrategic realities.

Zimbabwe looking back on the Lusaka Protocol

Vasco Martins

SADC will have an important role to play both in Zimbabwe's electoral process and in the period that concludes any type of government. Going through a severe humanitarian crisis, with little support from the international community, it will fall upon SADC's shoulders to solve the dire issues of Zimbabwe. Perhaps the Angolan government's experience will evoke a better understanding of the nature of this political conflict, yet history has always tested the strength of a new unity government after the failure of a previous one.

Guinea-Bissau: bringing Angola into the fold

Pedro Seabra

Angola is being granted a chance to prove its worth in this drawn out geopolitical quagmire. As the driving forces behind this latest political-military surge abroad, one could easily mention the significant Angolan economic interests in the country -- the exploration of lucrative mineral bauxite easily comes to mind -- but regional considerations must also be taken into account. Clearly, Angola is no longer too coy to display the full extent of its increasing economic power, and thus seeks to firmly entrench its status within the wider African context with this timely intervention.

Encircling Zimbabwe: between friend and foe

Vasco Martins

Unlike the ECOWAS, so far the SADC has been unable to congregate in a productive way, although the tables seem to be turning for Robert Mugabe, especially since South African President Jacob Zuma adopted a much tougher stance towards his regime. While the outcome of this political crisis is still unclear, it is apparent that the SADC possesses neither the strength nor the unity to make its policies significant, a weakness revealed when Robert Mugabe refrained from adopting any of SADC measures without significant regional consequences.
