Apartheid posed profound challenges to the conceptions of humanity and development that dominated the world stage after World War II. Embroiled analyses the manner in which international religious organisations dealt with the formulation and implementation of apartheid. It studies this question through an examination of the Swiss Mission in South Africa (SMSA), an institution that acted in South Africa, Switzerland and the international ecumenical community. As socially embedded institution, the SMSA mirrored divisions present within Swiss and South African societies on the issue of apartheid.
