Today we release Part One 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 podcastSizwe and Tshepo Madlingozi, Director and Associate Professor at the Centre for Applied Legal Studies, critique the Preamble of South Africa's Constitution. They suggest that the Preamble espouses a limited conception of justice and explore this in relation to persistent inequality in South Africa’s present. 

 

The members of the WISER Podcast team are Sarah Nuttall, Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh, Isabel Hofmeyr, Tinashe Mushakavanhu, Mpho Matsipa, Achille Mbembe and Bronwyn Kotzen.
