Denmark and National Liberation in Southern Africa: A Flexible Response

Synopsis

The book describes and documents the development of Danish support to national liberation in Southern Africa and the two-sided humanitarian and political character of the support. Popular support in Denmark developed around NGOs as a denunciation of the colonial and racist oppression, use of military force and disrespect of humanitarian and civic rights by the South African, Rhodesian and Portuguese regimes. Official Danish support starting in 1964 was financial support to humanitarian, legal and educational NGO activities, from 1971 both to NGOs to and national liberation movements.
