  • Immigration Debate | SA reaping the fruits of misrule

    Prof Loren Landau joins eNCA news anchor to discuss his Opinion piece co- authored with Dr. Jean Pierre Misago –  ‘Rising vigilantism: South Africa is reaping the fruits of misrule‘ which suggest that anti-immigrant groups have become reference points for national debate. Watch the discussion here:

  • What’s behind the rise of vigilantism in South Africa?

    Prof. Loren Landau explores what’s behind the rise of vigilantism in South Africa on @Newzroom405. His core message is that what we are witnessing is gangster governance not immigration.

  • Rising vigilantism: South Africa is reaping the fruits of misrule

    “Anti-immigrant activism is politics by other means, with violence likely to become common amid fundamental ruptures in governance. After years of unfulfilled promises, a youthful citizenry has lost considerable faith in formal electoral politics.”

  • Preventing xenophobic attacks in South Africa is possible: Look no further than the state response to the July unrest

    “That this violence continues unabated is evidence that no effective preventive measures are in place. Indeed, the South African government’s response to this violence has been (and still is) largely characterised by a lack of political will and denialism. This has led to a culture of impunity and lack of accountability not only for instigators and perpetrators of the violence, but also and perhaps more importantly for mandated state agencies (such as the police and crime intelligence) for their failure to prevent and stop violence despite visible warning signs.” – Dr. Jean Pierre Misago 

  • The Protests Are Bigger Than Zuma

    “While the #FreeJacobZuma campaign is the catalyst, the underlying reason is one that the country has not dealt with in its 27 years of democracy: the failure of the African National Congress to take responsibility for the past pain and trauma that the citizens have experienced, and to create an economy that delivers on the promise of equitable economic sovereignty for all South Africans.” Hakima Haithar

  • Tackling xenophobic discrimination in South Africa

    Dr Jean Pierre Misago speaks to France 24 about tackling xenophobic discrimination in South Africa in reaction to the recently published report on xenophobia in South Africa by Human Rights Watch.
