Political Cultures in Democratic South Africa

Synopsis

The contributions to this Discussion Paper reflect upon different but related aspects of South African democracy after Apartheid as represented in a variety of social forces, institutions and individuals. They illustrate that societies in transition have to make sustained efforts to overcome the legacies of the past, and that the present reproduces some of the past structural constraints and patterns of power and control in the new framework. The contri-butions were originally presented to a workshop organized in Cape Town in December 2001.
