ICT skills at the intermediate level in South Africa
Insights into private provision and labour market demand
Salim Akoojee, Fabian Arends, Joan Roodt

Both the government and the private sector have recognised the invaluable role that information and communication technology (ICT) plays in responding to national socio-economic imperatives. The importance of ICT skills to the economic, social and political trajectory in a globalised context cannot therefore be over-emphasised. The potential of, and limitations to, intermediate-level ICT skills in so far as they contribute to South Africa’s human resource capacity is considered essential to the current form and future trajectory of the country’s development.

Imagining the City
Memories and cultures in Cape Town
Sean Field, Renate Meyer, Felicity Swanson (eds)
This book explores the apartheid legacies of the city and demonstrates that cultural life flourished through people’s resilience in spite of adversity. Authors move beyond apartheid history to analyse the reflective ways in which people are coming to terms with that history through memory work, performance and memorialisation.

The impact of and responses to HIV/AIDS in the private security and legal services industry in South Africa
The impact of and responses to HIV/AIDS in the private security and legal services industry in South Africa
Compiled by the Social Aspects of HIV/AIDS & Health Research Progamme of the HSRC

The generalised nature of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Africa means that it impacts unevenly on businesses. Companies respond in varied ways, and with varied means, to the challenges posed by the epidemic. Assessment of the impacts of HIV/AIDS, and of the responses of companies to it, are critical to help mitigate the impact of the epidemic on productivity, labour costs, and the supply of skills.

In Search of Best Practice in South African Desegregated Schools
In Search of Best Practice in South African Desegregated Schools
Mokubung Nkomo, Saloshna Vandeyar

One of the daunting challenges facing South Africa in the contemporary period is that of achieving social cohesion. Educational institutions should be at the cutting edge of the project to weave a common identity whilst promoting respect for difference. It was this challenge that motivated us to convene colloquia in 2003 and 2006 to discuss the current state of school desegregation and innovative ways to forge ahead in the complex processes of dismantling the legacies of the past and creating inclusive paradigms for our classrooms.

A quantitive overview
Jacques L Du Toit
