PodcastAt the Cape Town Book Fair 2009, as part of the public programme of events, the State of the Nation was placed under review, with commentary on the challenges that face South Africa, 15 years into our new democracy. In this HSRC Press podcast segment, Dr Pearl Sithole and Dr Mcebisi Ndletyana discuss two of the papers published in South African Governance in Review, the integration of traditional leadership in South African governance and municipal capacity in local government reform.

Duration: 8 min 21 sec

 
Description

South Africa´s fourth non-racial democratic election in 2009 caps fifteen years of state transformation. This period has been marked by unprecedented changes in state institutional architecture and policies governing the functioning of state organs, the complexity of which have been periodically reviewed by government.

South African Governance in Review comprises papers prepared by the Democracy and Governance Research Programme of the Human Sciences Research Council, on some of the major governance issues facing the post-apartheid state. Based on research conducted as part of government’s fifteen-year review of governance and administration, the papers focus on three issues: public sector anti-corruption, local government restructuring and capacity, and the role of traditional leadership in post-apartheid governance.

This monograph will appeal to a range of interested readers including policy-makers, academics and analysts, as well as students and civil society.
