  1. of the style: 1) South Africa an emerging country – stable democracy – natural resources – integration into globalization 2) Obstacles to emergence – conflicts – inequalities segregation – health issues (hiv, low life expectancy etc)

  2. nor did I do it like that I. The foundations of the a-power; a country with geostrategic resources open to the world b; a varied industry and high-performance services c; a now stable democracy II. a power that gradually integrates a; first African power b; which fits into the game of globalization c; a new player on the international scene III. the challenges of the a power; socio-spatial segregation b; crime c; health challenge

  3. Personally I have done I. 1 new player in globalization 1. 1 BRICS members 2. 1 player in continental integration 3. global pretensions II. The many assets of South Africa 1. 1 successful exit from the policy of Apartheid 2. Natural resources and a tertiary economy III. 1 unequal regional dynamism and many obstacles 1. center gauteng 2. peripheries with a sketch for 1.2 of III 3. serious social and health challenges

  4. did not adopt this outline at all… Personally I did: I/ The manifestations of emergence 1. Africa’s leading economy 2. A regional power 3. Growing integration in globalization II/ The factors of emergence 1. Political reconstruction 2. Abundant natural resources and dynamic and varied economic activities III/ The limits of emergence 1. Still insufficient human development 2. Persistent inequalities (social and between regions ) Opinions?
