Sasas Family Matters

SASAS
Family Cohesion, values and wellbeing

‘The family’ has become a significant and growing focus of study across a variety of disciplinary perspectives in the humanities, social sciences, and law. In South Africa, there has been controversy and substantial debate over an apparent ‘crisis of the family’ during the last two decades. Ideological contestations have emerged over social morality and appeals for a return to traditional ‘family values’. In order to provide a better understanding of the supposed ‘crisis of the family’, it is necessary to use public opinion data to explore family cohesion, family values and the promotion of family life.

Township Economy

Township Economy People, Spaces and Practices

Township Economy provides a unique insight into township informal business and entrepreneurship. It is set in the post-apartheid period, in the third decade of Africa’s democracy and draws on evidence collected from 2010-2018 in 10 township sites, nine in South Africa and one in Namibia.
