Higher education and work consists of two papers. The first provides an analysis of research on graduate employment in South Africa, and reflects on the state of research on graduate employment and unemployment in South Africa, while the second looks at the challenges facing the education, training and employment of South Africas scientific labour force.

The development of South Africas scientific labour force forms part of a larger project of human resource development at universities, technikons, science councils, government departments and research agencies and the author examines the state of high-level knowledge production at universities and technikons as from 2000. He describes the state of masters and doctoral training, the quality of the academic workforce, and the state of research output.

In addition to the strategic importance of the analysis and the academic contribution that the ideas presented make, the publication is a tribute to the talented of the two papers, Charlton Koen, who passed away in 2005.

Ethical  Quandaries

Ethical Quandaries
In social research

The book opens up a space of frank discussion about the often unsettling, messy realities of ethical decision-making in the thick of social research. All the contributors write in the first person about personal experiences of research. They expose tensions within professional codes of ethics, as well as a range of dilemmas that arose when personal ethical convictions jostled with disciplinary and institutional ethical imperatives. The book is unique in spanning a range of research scenarios, qualitative and quantitative, across different disciplines, fields of study and institutional settings. The book will be of interest to all social researchers - in universities, NGOs and other applied milieu - working in fields of research structured by hierarchies of difference and conditions of inequality.
