Constructing a democratic developmental state in South Africa
Constructing a democratic developmental state in South Africa
Potentials and challenges
Omano Edigheji (ed)

The social and economic successes of Asia have drawn global attention to the developmental state as a possible model for developing countries. In South Africa, many, including government, see this as a possible panacea to the country's social, economic and institutional crises. However, a government committing itself to constructing a developmental state is one thing; actually implementing the necessary institutional and policy reforms to bring that into reality is another.

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.
