The conference was held at the invitation and with the support of the International Department of the Norwegian Labour Movement, as well as the Norwegian Government.
The conference was convened to review the situation in South Africa and the rest of Southern Africa. It assessed the implicationsof this situation for the international diplomatic and political work of the ANC.

The ANC is in an alliance with the South African Communist Party (SACP) and the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU). Each Alliance partner is an independent organisation with its own constitution, membership and programmes. The Alliance is founded on a common commitment to the objectives of the National Democratic Revolution, and the need to unite the largest possible cross-section of South Africans behind these objectives.
