Recording of Rebuild SA Government Webinar
24 November 2021
Gauteng City-Region Observatory (GCRO) and Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) is hosting a series of seminars under the theme ‘Rebuild’. This comes in the wake of the recent turmoil in KZN and Gauteng; the devastating impact of Covid 19 on lives, livelihoods and our democracy generally; the low economic growth SA was experiencing before the pandemic, and which worsened in 2020; and the challenges the state has been facing generally post the period of state capture.
Rebuilding Government examines the functionality of the state, focusing on some of the state weakness, as well as moments of resilience, that were exposed and exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic and the July 2021 events. What is a capable state and how can we achieve it?
