Nelson Mandela: a man and his legacy in the African and international panorama.- Juan Ángel Soto Gómez

A century after Mandela was born, we contemplate a country that has grown apart from the path he designed, and which elevated the Rainbow Nation as an ivory tower. This document analyses, from the perspective of international relations, the legacy of the South African hero. Moreover, this document assesses his legacy’s deterioration these past years, pointing out its current state. Finally, it will briefly point out the hope, under great uncertainty, that the future may bring to Mandela’s legacy.
