In June 1977, Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser attended the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting (CHOGM) in London. The most significant outcome of the meeting was the Gleneagles Agreement which was drafted by a five-nation team at a retreat at Gleneagles, Scotland.
Professor Cashman from the University of Technology Sydney discusses the key role played by Australia in the implementation of the apartheid sports boycott. Australia was the only white Commonwealth nation to fully accept and implement CHOGM and United Nations’ resolutions on sporting relations with South Africa.
