Africa is a Country & Jacobin
"The future for politics in South Africa" explores what comes after the national liberation struggle, the political settlement of the early 1990s and the crisis of liberal democracy. Speakers will discuss and debate the crises in the ruling ANC, the rise of movements like the Economic Freedom Fighters, "decolonization" on South African campuses (via the ongoing #FeesMustFall and #RhodesMustFall movements) as well as more grassroots based movements like Reclaim the City and Equal Education
