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.

Measuring Innovation in OECD and NON-OECD Countries
Measuring Innovation in OECD and NON-OECD Countries
Selected seminar papers
William Blankley, Mario Scerri, Neo Molotja, Imraan Saloojee (eds)
It is widely accepted that innovation is key to economic growth. Countries where research and innovation are high on the national agenda are best suited to prosper in the knowledge-based economy. Conversely, countries whose economies are mainly dependent on natural resources and basic industries tend to lack competitiveness and flexibility in adapting to changing global trends. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has long been concerned with the measurement of research and experimental development (R&D) and innovation activities.

Multinationals on the Periphery
Multinationals on the Periphery
DaimlerChrysler South Africa, human capital upgrading and regional economic development
Jo Lorentzen
Utilising the DaimlerChrysler human resources upgrade in one of South Africa’s least developed provinces as the basis, this is a well-developed case study of the relationship between human capital in host economies and international capital inflows. It describes how DaimlerChrysler upgraded human resources in its East London plant where the company manufactures the Mercedes C-Class model for export. Lorentzen explores the extent and depth of the upgrading along and beyond the automotive supply chain, and its repercussions on local education and training institutions. Finally, he analyses how foreign direct investment and local industrial development interact in the short and medium term, and hypothesises as to the possible longer-term outcomes in the absence of proper regional economic planning.

Trade Unions and Democracy
Trade Unions and Democracy
COSATU workers political attitudes in South Africa
Sakhela Buhlungu (ed)
This title analyses the results of a survey of the political attitudes of members of the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) undertaken in the run up to South Africa’s third democratic general election in 2004. The survey was the third in a series, two previous ones having been conducted by some of the authors writing in the present collection before the elections of 1994 and 1999. The results of all three surveys are presented in an appendix, and taken together constitute a unique data base whose interpretation makes a major contribution to our understanding of contemporary South African history, notably with regard to how and why COSATU has become a major political actor within the ‘tripartite alliance’ which links it to the ruling African National Congress and the South African Communist Party.
