Peace-Making in Divided Societies
The Israel-South Africa analogy
Heribert Adam
This occasional paper explores lessons that the unresolved Israel-Palestinian conflict can draw from South Africa's 'negotiated revolution'. Six realms are compared: economic interdependence, religious divisions, third party interventions, leadership, political culture and violence. The author also sheds light on the nature of ethnicity as well as the limits of negotiation politics.

Politicians and Apartheid
Politicians and Apartheid
Trailing in the people's wake
John Gardner
This publication explores/hypothesises why apartheid was abandoned by South Africa's ruling white National Party. In this publication, written in the early years of South Africa's democracy, apartheid's decline is examined under three categories: occupational, geographical and political apartheid. It is thus of great historical and sociological interest to researchers and theorists.

Politics of origin in Africa
Politics of origin in Africa
Autochthony, citizenship and conflict
Morten Bøås, Kevin C. Dunn
In this revealing new book, Boas and Dunn explore the phenomenon of autochthony in contemporary African politics. Autochthony discourses enable the speaker to establish a direct claim to territory by the assertion of being an original inhabitant, a native – literally a ‘son of the soil’

Popular Politics in SA Cities
Popular Politics in SA Cities
Unpacking Community Participation
Claire Benit-Gbaffou
Community meetings seldom lead to significant change in urban policies, and have been accused of being sterile, sedative, or manipulative. This book starts from a simple question: why do people then continue to participate in these meetings, sometimes massively, and on a regular basis? Authors from a variety of disciplines explore the multiple roles of these �invited� spaces of participation. From consolidation of individual social status and networks, to the construction and framing of the local �community�, the display of political or group loyalties and maintenance of clientelist exchange, access to information, rumors or gossip but also forms of education on who and what is the state, invited spaces of participation are also, crucially, places of emergence of collective awareness, through shared expressions of frustration, that can lead to political mobilisation and other, less institutionalised forms of participation. This book, unpacking community politics and rethinking the complex articulations between ��invited� and invented� spaces of participation, is of relevance for international and national audiences interested in urban governance and local democracy.

Post-Apartheid Patterns of Internal Migration in South Africa
Post-Apartheid Patterns of Internal Migration in South Africa
Pieter Kok, Michael O'Donovan, Oumar Bouare, Johan van Zyl
Popular belief is that urbanisation has increased substantially in the new South Africa, when, in fact, patterns of internal migration have remained static since the late 1970s. Internal migration patterns have been under-researched since the easing of restrictions in 1990. This study fills the gap drawing on census and other secondary data.

Potential Attrition in Education
Potential Attrition in Education
The impact of job satisfaction, morale, workload and HIV/AIDS
Elsje Hall, Miriam Altman, Nkululeko Nkomo, Karl Peltzer, Khangelani Zuma
The decision to change one's job is usually preceded by a process of job evaluation and determining alternative employment opportunities. Dissatisfaction with the workplace can be a strong incentive to seek alternative opportunities. This study focuses on the role played by job satisfaction, morale and HIV/AIDS in educator attrition. The responses of educators who considered leaving their jobs were compared to the responses of those preferring to stay. Findings reveal that job dissatisfaction linked to poor salaries and limited possibilities for career development, as well as the lack of status and respect attached to the profession, may push educators out  of the classroom. The low morale amongst potential leavers reflects this dissatisfaction, as well as the stress caused by curriculum transformation and the emotional impact of HIV/AIDS.

Poverty and Policy in Post-Apartheid South Africa
Poverty and Policy in Post-Apartheid South Africa
Haroon Bhorat, Ravi Kanbur (eds)

The political freedoms ushered in by the post 1994 transition were seen at that time as the basis for redressing long-standing economic deprivations suffered by the majority of the population. The reduction of poverty, in all its dimensions, was the goal.

Power, Politics and Identity in South African media
Power, Politics and Identity in South African media
Adrian Hadland, Eric Louw, Simphiwe Sesanti, Herman Wasserman (eds)

South Africa offers a rich context for the study of the interrelationship between the media and identity. The essays collected here explore the many diverse elements of this interconnection, and give fresh focus to topics that scholarship has tended to overlook, such as the pervasive impact of tabloid newspapers. Interrogating contemporary theory, the authors shed new light on how identities are constructed through the media, and provide case studies that illustrate the complex process of identity renegotiation taking place currently in post-apartheid South Africa. The contributors include established scholars as well as many new voices. Collectively, they represent some of South Africa’s finest media analysts pooling skills to grapple with one of the country’s most vexing issues: who are we?

The Practicalities of Using Nevirapine for PMTCT in Under-Resourced Settings
The Practicalities of Using Nevirapine for PMTCT in Under-Resourced Settings
The case of Qaukeni District in the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa
Henry Fomundam, Thabang Mosala, Olive Shisana, Karl Peltzer, Thembiso Pakade, Pelisa Dana

Implementation of the programmes intended to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS (PMTCT) is a major challenge, particularly in developing countries. Despite the controversies about Nevirapine (NVP) resistance, safety and efficacy, it is still widely acclaimed and used in most resource-limited countries because it is affordable, easy-to-use and practical. This study identifies the gaps in NVP use for PMTCT in a rural setting, where almost 42% of pregnant women have no access to healthcare facilities and deliver at home, with the support of traditional birth assistants or family members. As a result, many rural HIV-positive pregnant women deliver without the opportunity of PMTCT therapy provided by ante-natal clinics.
