Reconciliation Barometer report receives extensive media coverage

Posted on December 10, 2009. Filed under: News |

The 2009 SA Reconciliation Barometer report was launched yesterday in Cape Town – the report has received lots of media attention, through print and online articles, in radio and on television!

Released just ahead of National Reconciliation Day on the 16th of December, the report has also provoked questions about South Africa’s progress in national reconciliation after 15 years of democracy, our shared achievements and shortcomings, and what we envision for the future.

We would like to continue this ongoing conversation – we encourage you to read the full media report (click here) and post your comments online!

Here is how some of the media has covered the report:

Half of SA doesn’t mix with other races

Most SA citizens still to cross race divide

Survey reveals pessimism over race relations in SA

Race, a social barricade

Better race relations in SA 15 years into democracy: survey

South Africans feel protests justified

South Africa rainbow nation ideal wanes

Stop playing race card, urges opposition

Also listen up for our radio commentary on the survey! IJR staff have already been featured on the SABC, Heart FM, East Coast Radio, Khaya FM,  RSG and others. More interviews are coming up on Voice of the Cape, Lotus FM and Radio 702/567 Cape Talk!

Just as well, the survey did not look at xenophobia! It’s not hard to guess what the findings would have been considering the lack of progress in inter-racial/ social interaction in SA. Depressing!
