Description
 
South Africa劌製 transition from apartheid to democracy in 1994 was expected to usher in a new era of peace, stability, and accelerated development. However, despite widespread optimism, political violence has persisted. Although a fraction of that experienced under apartheid, levels of political violence are worsening and indicative of the country劌製 potential fragility. They also map out the fault lines along which South Africa may yet stumble. While growing poverty and inequality are key sources of discontent, political violence is triggered by competition for financial and political resources available through the state. This competition is further fueled by perceptions of the post-apartheid state as a source of personal enrichment and power. Contents of this report: A Paradox of Rising Influence and Violence; Political Violence as a Source of Destabilization; The Security Sector劌製 Capacity to Manage Unrest; Recommendations. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
