It finally illuminates the trade-offs Botswana's top decision-makers face in determining the appropriate policies to maximize utility, given its goals. The subject matter is discussed through an analysis of Botswana's international interaction; evaluating, how they have maximized the benefits of multilateral international cooperation beyond Botswana’s and African borders.
