LAUNCH OF THE INSTITUTE FOR JUSTICE AND RECONCILIATION’S TRANSFORMATION AUDIT 2012 - CAPE TOWN WEDNESDAY 20 FEBRUARY 2013

 

Launched in 2000 in the aftermath of South Africa´s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the work of the IJR is to ensure that lessons learnt from South Africa´s transition from apartheid to democracy are taken into account in South Africa, but also in several other post-conflict African states where the Institute has a presence.

 Produced by the IJR's Policy and Analysis (PA) Unit, the Transformation Audit is regarded as an authoritative analysis of socio-economic change in post-apartheid South Africa and has become essential reading for diplomats, policy-makers, politicians, Parliament, academia and organised civil society. In 2012, outgoing Swedish Ambassador to South Africa Peter Tejler commented, “The IJR Transformation Audit is the best publication of its kind and invaluable source of informed analysis”. The latest Audit, titled “The Youth Dividend: Unlocking the Potential of Young South Africans”, hones in on the issues and obstacles that impede this country’s young population (two thirds are younger than 35) from taking their rightful place in the economy.
