Peace diplomacy: The South African national defence force in Burundi

image of Peace diplomacy: The South African national defence force in Burundi

As discussed in earlier chapters in this volume (particularly Møller), the role of the armed forces has undergone significant changes since the end of the Cold War. The traditional focus has changed from a narrow territorial defence to a broader societal approach, where the armed forces are just one element in dealing with the security threats that modern societies face. In South Africa one of the consequences has been that the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) increasingly has been asked to handle what are traditionally defined as secondary tasks, such as domestic policing, border control and, since 1999, international peace support operations (PSOs).
