3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) in partnership with the Wits School of Governance is pleased to invite you to the launch of MISTRA’s latest research publication entitled, Marriages of Inconvenience: The politics of coalitions in South Africa on the 8th July 2021.
The research-based volume collates and interprets lessons that South Africa should take to heart in managing interparty coalitions. It explores domestic experiences of coalition government as well as case studies from the rest of the African continent and instances further afield. It seeks to distil the factors that leverage successful coalitions, along with those that undermine them.
Marriages of Inconvenience: The politics of coalitions in South Africa identifies and explores critical questions about how to stabilise coalition governance in the South African setting.
The volume is edited by MISTRA’s Research Director, Professor Susan Booysen with contributions from Professor Mcebisi Ndletyana, Dr Khabele Matlosa, Professor Pierre de Vos and Amuzweni Ngoma amongst many other policy experts, researchers and academics.
