As long as the Security Council has no means of enforcing its South West Africa resolutions by some chapters 5 or 6 peace force, and as long as enforcement measures under chapter 7 remain improbable, it is ultimately for South Africa to decide whether it will be prepared to render these resolutions effective. In this respect, it will be incumbent on South Africa to define its position not only as regards South West Africa, but also vis-a-vis the United Nations, and to indicate on what basis it is prepared to resume a debate on South West Africa.
The imperfections of the East African common market are many and far-reaching. But still they are far less than those prevailing at the time of the signing of the treaty. They are also not regarded as permanent because the treaty's common market provisions are of a temporary nature only. They will remain in force until 1 December 1982 (subject, of course, to the possibility of earlier amendment), and have to be reviewed before that date [article 92(1) ] . The ultimate ideal is said to be "the establishment of a common market with no restrictions in the long run on trade" (preamble, paragraph 8) and, we may assume, with no restrictions on the movement of the factors of production as well.
Before the question of the possibility of reception of the trust in civil law can be considered, the basic problem that must be dealt with is that of the distinction between legal and equitable ownership. It is hardly possible to consider the civilian approach to trust ownership questions until it is decided whether the terms legal and equitable ownership can be validly used in a comparative sense. Frequently the assertion is made that it is futile to attempt to introduce the notion of trust into civilian systems as the entire idea depends to so great an extent on the law/equity distinction, and that any system to which this distinction is foreign cannot be expected to accommodate the trust.
