Abstract

In looking at changes in the processes and practice of oversight and in South Africa's foreign policy, this chapter argues that there has been both successes and constraints in pursuit of democratic transparency and accountability. The chapter highlights the importance of linkage between the formal and informal levels in promoting oversight. This has come under pressure during the second Zuma administration (2014-2018), reflecting a growing gap that resulted in a slide away from the democratisation of foreign policy.
