Reforming Intelligence: South Africa after Apartheid
Dombroski, Kenneth R.
MetadataShow full item record
By most objective standards, the intelligence-sector reform that has taken place in South Africa since the end of apartheid seems to be a model success. Not only have the intelligence services gone from being militarized, highly repressive instruments of internal control to being seemingly transparent and democratically accountable civilian-led agencies designed to inform policy, but they have done so in a systematic manner that conforms to the policy prescriptions and theories of experts in the field of democratic transformation. From a theoretical standpoint, South Africa’s transformation process is a political scientist’s dream come true: Models were adapted to policy prescriptions, which in turn were codified into law and then operationalized as new structures and procedures. One can study where the South African intelligence sector stood during the apartheid era, discern how the transformation process was designed and implemented, and analyze the tangible results of these reforms on the intelligence sector.
