MISTRA’s Protest in South Africa Book Launch
28 February 2023
The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA), in partnership with the Wits School of Governance (WSG) hosted the launch of MISTRA’s latest edited research volume, Protest in South Africa: Rejection, reassertion, reclamation. Edited by Heidi Brooks, Rekgotsofetse Chikane and Shauna Mottiar, the volume explores South Africa’s post-1994 protest landscape with a view to understanding the dynamics, underpinnings and implications of contemporary protest. Exploring the multifaceted and interconnected drivers of protest, the volume illuminates both short term causes and institutional and structural drivers, while highlighting some of the strategic challenges that emerge from popular unrest.
