In The Balance: South Africans Debate Reconciliation
Heads up! In the next few weeks, look out for a new book edited by IJR Executive Director Fanie du Toit and Senior Research Fellow Erik Doxtader– soon to be on book shelves (not to mention, in soccer stadiums, coffee bars, taxi ranks… you get the idea!) around the country.
In the Balance: South Africans Debate Reconciliation features new analysis of the current state of reconciliation in South Africa, by leading thinkers and activists from civil society, politics, the academy and the media. Here’s the official blurb…
In the Balance opens a space for critical and imaginative reflection on the contested legacy, contemporary meanings, and future possibilities of reconciliation in South Africa. With essays from a diverse and leading set of commentators, the title aims to move beyond current thinking about reconciliation.
Presenting the good news with the bad, the staunch advocates of reconciliation along with its sharpest critics, this book seeks to provide individuals, citizens and the public with ideas about how and why they might wish to undertake their own discussions and deliberations about the meaning and value of reconciliation.
