Abstract : What are the appropriate strategies to bring about political changes in South Africa? what type of political regime will promote a democratic and nonracial postapartheid society while safeguarding the rights of all citizens? Who should contribute to this solution? What are the prerequisites to be met before? These are the main questions this study deals with. It explores first the various strategies--political, economic, sociocultural, military--available to internal as well as external actors, in order to breed fundamental changes. Then, the study reviews the current main proposals as regard to political power sharing, before presenting its masterpiece of constitutional framework of a Federation of South Africa, democratic and nonracial. A final part is dedicated, in conclusion, to the prerequisites of such a peaceful negotiated solution and the critical roles that external actors as the United States, the Organization of African Unity (OAU) and the United Nations should play to bring all parties at the negotiating table and guarantee the various agreements reached.
