About this product
- DescriptionFor three decades post-apartheid, the HIV/AIDS epidemic from first ackwledgement to its management as a chronic disease, demanded unparalleled attention. This was where more evident than in South Africa. This book explores how the state responded to its responsibilities to defend and protect (human) security. Linking this to the role of the state as sovereign protector and provider of security, it applies the findings to the broader re-interpretation of sovereign responsibility in the 21st Century. This book does t seek to absolve the South African state of its responsibility to respond. Moreover, it argues that although the state, the government, before, during, and after the transition to democracy, was aware of and ackwledged the threat - political, ecomic and social - posed by the epidemic, it netheless chose t to make the epidemic a priority policy issue. As a result, it argues that the South African HIV/AIDS case illustrates the tension inherent between a state's ultimate sovereign responsibility to respond and its tactical dependence on external contributors to meet the demands of all of its constituents.
