This publication looks at different forms of conflict that occurred in South Africa during the early 1990s: political violence, labour protests, campus violence, taxi-related violence and conflict, and general crime. It also considers different approaches to conflict resolution and mediation at community level, local government level and internationally. In most cases an analysis is made of the actual manifestation and type of conflict, the response to it, the methods used to combat it, and the result of mediation and conflict resolution interventions.
