Associate Membership

Associate Membership

The new Associate Membership is useful only to those countries who are near enough to get some benefit from practical activities. The three countries, Britain, South Africa and Israel, which have adopted this form of membership have been careful to see that they are in no way associated with IUS policy decisions. The South Africans have hedged their membership with restrictions that run to half a foolscap page of single-space typing. As Car as the rest of the [unclear: monwealth] concerned, Scotland is out, Canada sends observers but does very little else and the Australians will in future send observers only when it is "desirable and necessary"—the assumption being that it is not at all times likely to be desirable and necessary.
