South Africa’s current structural unemployment will not change unless its political leaders commit to building an inclusive economy in future.
As the country struggles to address policy incoherence and deals with an electricity supply crisis, what are its long-term prospects?
This seminar will launch the ISS’s latest paper in the African Futures series, authored by Dr Jakkie Cilliers.
The paper explores two alternative growth scenarios for South Africa in the next 20 years, and their implications for employment, politics and poverty.
Chair: Gareth Newham, Head, Governance, Crime and Justice Division, ISS
