Since the South African Reconciliation Barometer’s (SARB) inception in 2003, most South Africans have indicated their preference for a united South African nation. The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation released the latest SARB findings in Cape Town this morning.
On the 2nd of December 2017, a historic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by Siyakha and the IJR to cement a working partnership between our two organisations. We hope that our relationship will increase our collective capacity for honest reconciliation and historical justice. IJR's relationship with Siyahka has grown from strength to strength and we look forward to further collaboration.
From 2012 through 2016, the IJR undertook a project, Building Integrated Communities, to test ways that reconciliation can be promoted and to develop a methodology from which anyone can learn. Its findings are now available in a single volume.
By measuring reconciliation in South Africa through public opinion surveying since 2003, the SARB captures progress and offers empirical insights. Join us as we launch and discuss the findings of the most recent SARB survey.
A conference on using social change to Build Inclusive Societies will follow the book launch on, from 01 Dec – 02 December 2017. During the conference, the IJR will sign an MoU with the Siyakha Community Healing Forum. The IJR’s Sustained Dialogues team shares this book, encapsulating 5 years’ of experiences and insights stemming from deep-rooted community-building through dialogue and capacity building
