From Defence to Development: Redirecting Military Resources in South Africa
"Focuses on redefining the notion of security to take into account the threats to peace caused by poverty and social dislocation, converting the defence industry to civilian production, reallocation defence expenditure, redeploying troops and retraining ex-combatants in development projects and for environmental protection, redistributing land previously used as military bases." Partial contents : The 1996 Defence White Paper : an agenda for state demilitarisation ; Weapons testing : its impact on people and the environment ; Land-mines in Southern Africa ; Apartheid's nuclear arsenal : deviation from development.
