Earnings inequality in South Africa 1995–2003
Ingrid Woolard, Chris Woolard
It is generally accepted that the gap between the earnings of unskilled and semi-skilled workers on the one hand, and skilled and highly skilled workers, on the other, narrowed in South Africa during the 1970s and 1980s. This paper investigates whether the gap between the real earnings of highly skilled and low-skilled workers in the formal sector of the South African economy continued to narrow after this country’s transition to democracy.

Education and Poverty Reduction Strategies
Education and Poverty Reduction Strategies
Issues of Policy Coherence (Colloquium Proceedings)
Simeon Maile (ed)

The connection between poverty and lack of education seems entirely self-evident, yet real progress in overcoming the obstacles to education and economic affluence has eluded governments and social activists worldwide for decades. This book interrogates the link between education and poverty reduction and highlights the role of cross-sectoral co-ordination and policy coherence in breaking the poverty trap.

Educator Supply and Demand in the South African Public Education System
Educator Supply and Demand in the South African Public Education System
Integrated report
K Peltzer; O Shisana, E Udjo; D Wilson, T Rehle; C Connolly, K Zuma; L Letlape, J Louw; L Simbayi, N Zungu-Dirwayi; S Ramlagan, K Magome; E Hall, M Phurutse
Education plays a key role in the development of any society. Responding to the need for empirical evidence on the demand for and supply of public educators in South Africa, the Education Labour Relations Council (ELRC) commissioned the Human Sciences Research Council-led consortium to conduct nation-wide research on the factors determining educator supply and demand in South African public education system. Growth demand for educators depends on learner enrolments and the learner-educator ratio, while replacement demand for educators depends on employment trends, demographics and attrition (including morbidity and morality). Educator supply depends on a number of factors, such as education graduates, morbidity and morality, and educators returning after a break from the profession.

Educator workload in South Africa
Educator workload in South Africa
Linda Chisholm, Ursula Hoadley, Mbithi wa Kivulu, Heather Brookes, Cas Prinsloo, Asnath Kgobe, Dan Mosia, Hersheela Narsee, Stephen Rule
Teachers spend slightly less time on their activities overall, but much less time on teaching than policy requires. There is a serious erosion of instructional time in the majority of schools, but it is worst in rural and semi-rural African schools.

Electric Capitalism
Electric Capitalism
Recolonising Africa on the power grid
David A McDonald (ed)

Although Africa is the most under-supplied region of the world for electricity, its economies are utterly dependent on it. There are enormous inequalities in electricity access, with industry receiving abundant supplies of cheap power while more than 80 per cent of the continent's population remain off the power grid. Africa is not unique in this respect, but levels of inequality are particularly pronounced here due to the inherent unevenness of 'electric capitalism' on the continent.

In commentary that ranges from the use of nuclear power to the search for alternative energy sources, the gendered nature of the manufacture and distribution of electricity, the provision of free basic electricity, the building of hydro-electric dams and more, authors David McDonald, Liz McDaid, David Fig and Wendy Annecke probe the intricacies of the contemporary electricity sector in this podcast.

Emerging Voices
Emerging Voices
A report on education in South African rural communities
Researched for the Nelson Mandela Foundation by the Human Sciences Research Council , with the Education Policy Consortium
One of the greatest challenges South Africa faces is rural poverty and education. This book graphically illustrates the conditions that make the dreams of a better life for all virtually unrealisable in rural areas. Through the voices of rural people themselves, the reader is told not only what the problems are but also what can and should be done. Emerging Voices is a richly documented portrait of the lives of communities in selected rural areas, and specifically their thoughts and feelings about education. It is a book that can come at no better time as South Africa is poised to launch a major offensive against poverty in rural areas. Education, this book shows, must be a central component of such an initiative. Collectively, the chapters illustrate the complexity, interconnectedness and intractability of the challenges that face rural communities and education in South Africa in particular and less developed countries more generally.

Empire development and colonialism: The past in the present
Empire development and colonialism: The past in the present
This collection draws on a range of methodologies and approaches to explore the similarities, differences and overlaps between the contemporary debates on international development and humanitarian intervention and the historical artefacts and strategies of Empire. The parallels between the language of nineteenth-century liberal imperialism and the humanitarian interventionism of the post-Cold War era are striking. The American military, both in Somalia in the early 1990s and in the aftermath of the Iraq invasion, used ethno-graphic information compiled by British colonial administrators. Are these interconnections accidental curiosities or more elemental? The contributors to this book articulate the belief that these comparisons are analytically revealing. From the language of moral necessity and conviction, the design of specific aid packages, the devised forms of intervention and governmentality, through to the life-style, design and location of NGO encampments, the authors seek to account for the numerous and often striking parallels between contemporary international security, development and humanitarian intervention, and the logic of Empire. This book will be of great interest to all those concerned with understanding the historical antecedents and wider implications of today's emergent liberal interventionism, and the various logics of international development.

Empowerment through Service Delivery
Empowerment through Service Delivery
Meshack M. Khosa (ed)

The primary aim of Empowerment through Service Delivery is to critically appraise the challenges facing infrastructure and service delivery in South Africa. The secondary aim is to assess, evaluate and analyse perceptions of infrastructure and service delivery since 1994. An array of case studies drawn from various provinces and diverse rural and urban settings is presented. The analysis of infrastructure and service delivery goes beyond just providing 'statistics', which are often used uncritically. Empowerment through Service Delivery brings together both qualitative and quantitative analyses, covering various sectors such as water, electricity, transport, education, health, human resources and local economic development.

An Encumbered Regional Power
An Encumbered Regional Power
The Capacity Gap in South Africa’s Peace Diplomacy in Africa
Peter Kagwanja

The main focus of this publication is the link between South Africa’s grand pan-African ambitions, especially in the area of peace, security and governance, and its own capacity to pursue these objectives. Specifically, the paper examines Pretoria’s involvement in Africa, and internal capacity to support its mediation, peacekeeping and strengthening the abilities of African institutions for peacemaking. Further, it examines the challenges posed by tension between its pan-African and economic interests as well as power rivalry at the continental level, which have greatly limited its ability to take a more assertive role in regional political and economic developments. It briefly describes South Africa’s relations within SADC and the AU, as well as with Zimbabwe and examines the challenges posed by the agendas of China and Africa’s former colonial powers.
