The Futures of the Constitution (Part 2)
Apr 29th, 2021 by witswiser
Today we release Part Two of The WISER Podcast’s next mini-series, The Futures of the Constitution. It draws on research by WISER Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh, on continuities between South Africa’s apartheid past and its democratic present, under the framework of “the new apartheid”.
In this podcast, he continues to explore the South African Constitution’s conception of justice, this time through a comparative lens. He then examines links between the Constitution’s conception of justice and the persistent injustices of South Africa’s present and considers how we might frame a set of future-oriented debates in relation to both.
Today we also release our second batch of WISER Transcripts, making four more of our podcasts available in textual form for ease of citation and reference. Curated and designed by Tinashe Mushakavanhu, the transcripts can be found at this link:
The members of the WISER Podcast team are Sarah Nuttall, Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh, Isabel Hofmeyr, Tinashe Mushakavanhu, Mpho Matsipa, Achille Mbembe and Bronwyn Kotzen.
