South Africa Since 1994

Lessons and Prospects

edited by Sipho Buthelezi, Elizabeth le Roux

A collection of papers originating from the Africa Institute of South Africa's annual colloquium in 2001, convened to assess social, political and economic aspects of change in South Africa since 1994. The work is broadly divided into sections on policy making, foreign policy, education, culture and case studies.

Some examples of individual contributions are: Mbeki's African Renaissance and his global reform initiative; entrepreneurial development; the effects of globalisation on South Africa; the globalisation of South Africa's natural capital; and global apartheid. Areas of foreign policy include South Africa's response to Zimbabwe, international migration and xenophobia. Essays on education consider South African universities and the transformation of higher education; the changing nature of schools and post- apartheid trends in education.

The case studies detail human capital policies in the South African public services since 1994; and women's participation in housing delivery. The contributors include established academics, activists and younger scholars.
