This is the first online public dialogue in a series hosted by Ndifuna Ukwazi and PLAAS to promote a public dialogue on the current realities and prospects for broadened access to land in South Africa. The dialogues will focus on the complexities of realising access to land on an equitable basis; take stock of existing struggles for urban and rural land justice as well as the implications of landmark court judgments that have drawn attention to the failures of post-apartheid land reform; and critically assess how we can promote redress, substantive equality and collective healing through broadened access to land.
Speakers for the first pubic dialogue:
- Katlego Ramantsima (Researcher, PLAAS)
- Mandisa Shandu (Executive Director & Attorney, Ndifuna Ukwazi)
- Tembeka Ngcukaitobi (Advocate of the High Court, Author & Political Activist)
- Farai Mtero (Senior Researcher, PLAAS)
We look forward to rich debates and engagements with civil society representatives, academics, social movements, community-based organisations, housing activists, experts and the general public.
