Rethinking rural transformation in South Africa
MetadataShow full item record
In this edition we describe a civil society workshop convened by the Foundation for Human Rights (FHR) and the Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS) entitled ‘Re-thinking Rural Transformation in South Africa. Strategic Civil Society Engagement in Rural Transformation in South Africa’, look at land reform statistics and provide an analysis of the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Bill. We also pay tribute to the work that was done by Kobus Pienaar – a land rights advocate and brilliant legal mind who worked tirelessly to make the provisions of the South African Constitution tangible for rural communities. The communities that he served also tell the stories of their journeys with Kobus to substantive rights.
