Power, Conflict and Development in Contemporary South Africa

Power, Conflict and Development in Contemporary South Africa

SEMINAR organised by CROP/UiB with visiting professor Sithembiso Myeni from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

7 November 2017 (08:30-09:30) | Bergen Resource Centre for International Development


Link to event

South Africa is currently experiencing developmental challenges in the post-apartheid era. The convergence of power and conflict threaten a legitimate long-term vision to structurally transform South Africa's economy, eradicate poverty, and reduce inequality and unemployment.

This seminar will examine the dynamics of contemporary post-apartheid South Africa in order to understand the visible manifestations of power and conflict. Fresh ideas will be presented relating to the continued use of power by the political elite in order to control and manage conflict, whilst trying to avoid individual responsibility and accountability.
