Unraveling the Impact of South Africa’s Geopolitical Neutrality: A Deep Dive into the Russia-Ukraine War
South Africa’s geopolitical stance in the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war is shaping the country’s economy in profound ways, as evidenced by the recent plunge of the rand and an aggressive sell-off of local stocks and bonds. Yet, the complexity of this issue extends beyond the realm of economics, influencing the political and financial aspects of the nation as well.
In this week’s edition of “The Power Table,” we attempt to dissect and quantify the cost of South Africa’s intended neutrality in this escalating conflict. This in-depth discussion features insights from distinguished academics and professionals, including Dr. Nicholas Westcott, a Professor of Practice in Diplomacy from the University of London, Dr. Adrian Saville, a Professor of Economics, Finance, and Strategy at the Gordon Institute of Business Studies, and Leonard Mbulle-Nziege, a Political Economist and Doctoral Candidate at the University of Cape Town.
We invite you to join this enlightening discourse and delve into the intricate implications of South Africa’s geopolitical decisions. To watch the full discussion, click here.
