Malan forcefully pushed for the incorporation of the HCTs into South Africa, but Great Britain resisted what would have amounted to South Africa’s colonization of the HCTs. South Africa’s growing isolation and its failure to annex the HCTs led Malan to promote functional cooperation as a way to maintain its tenuous ties to the rest of Africa. It was also an attempt to gain a modicum of international legitimacy. In 1950, South Africa helped create the Commission for Technical Cooperation in Africa South of the Sahara (CTCA).

Malan’s foreign policy was notable for its stubborn denial of the changes sweeping across Africa. His successor Johannes Strijdom took a more pragmatic path. He and his forceful foreign minister, Eric Louw, did not ignore the winds of change, but they continued the pursuit of regional hegemony. Like his predecessors, Strijdom failed to incorporate the HCTs, and this failure was reinforced by a second regional setback. For decades South Africa had anticipated the incorporation of Southern Rhodesia,18 but in 1953, Southern Rhodesia, Northern Rhodesia, and Nyasaland, under the auspices of British rule, formed the Central African Federation, Great Britain and Southern Rhodesia’s response to South Africa’s regional ambitions.

The result is that relative gains bene¤t the more advanced state. 71 While politics begins at home, important international opportunities and constraints affect the ideological and material dimensions of economic foreign policy in South Africa. 72 The international political economy, through its ideological and material in®uences, impacts domestic competition (both commercial and ideological) among powerful actors within South Africa who seek to in®uence government policy. That is, the international political economy aids or supports speci¤c domestic interests in South Africa.
