Abstract

The whole question of the arms trade raises many complicated issues of a moral and economic kind. The new South African government has continued to sell arms to a variety of non-democratic countries and has been at pains to justify this against many moral and political objections. The case explores this problem and asks: should the ANC government, with its long history of opposition to non-democratic government, continue to sell arms to non-democratic regimes such as Syria? The case will be useful in courses in comparative politics, applied political philosophy, public policy and international relations and would certainly provide ample material for a full seminar discussion or more.
