A Policy Agenda for a Post-Apartheid South Africa

Kaplinsky, Raphael ed. (1994). A Policy Agenda for a Post-Apartheid South Africa. IDS Bulletin, 25 (1). Institute of Development Studies.


Raphie Kaplinsky gives an overview of the readings in IDS Bulletin 25.1 and starts to explore the policy terrain which would allow an incoming administration in post-apartheid South Africa to meet the needs of the population more effectively. The authors focus on policy issues that are imbedded in current political processes - and they cover a range of economic and social policy issues: industrial growth, the nurturing of microenterprises, foreign investment policy, manufacturing, mining reform and taxation, violence and reconciliation, and education at primary, secondary and university level. The content also reflects on the extent to which policy thinking in South Africa could be informed by the experience of other countries which have confronted similar challenges. For those outside South Africa, it is hoped that the articles provide an overview of the broad issues that are being confronted in the restitution of the wrongs of the past.
