Regional Social Policy for Sustainable Human Development: A Southern African Option

By Ndangwa Noyoo

Abstract:
This discussion calls for a deepened and embedded regional integration process, in the context of southern Africa, which would essentially be premised on regional social policy. Its central thesis is that once regional social policy is institutionalised at the supranational level, by regional governments, the region's efforts towards regional integration would also be crystallised.

Lastly, the paper contends that southern Africa's social policy should be articulated within a framework of democratic political systems and sound macro-economic regimes, in order for the region to attain maximum human development outcomes.
