The Institute’s research on changing racial sentiment in South Africa since 1994 has been published under the title The Long Shadow of Apartheid: Race in South Africa since 1994. The research includes interviews with senior business and academic leaders in South Africa. The project was funded through a grant from the Maurice Webb Trust.
Fifteen years after the triumph of Nelson Mandela’s inauguration as South Africa’s first black president – and particularly since Jacob Zuma became president – the ‘rainbow nation’ seems to be drifting and in search of a new policy direction to help it overcome its daunting challenges.
Fifteen years have passed since South Africans were being shot or hacked or burned to death in political conflict; and the memory of the trauma has faded. Some 20 500 people were nevertheless killed between 1984 and 1994. The conventional wisdom is that they died at the hands of a state-backed Third Force, but the more accurate explanation is that they died as a result of the people’s war the ANC unleashed.
