Promoting Social Cohesion in an Unequal Society: findings from South Africa
In October 2016, the French Development Agency (AFD), the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR) and the University of Cape Town (UCT)’s Poverty and Inequality Initiative (PII) commenced working on a research project which aimed to address the following questions:
- What is the relationship between social cohesion and economic inequality?
- What kinds of institutional change do we need in order to promote social cohesion and reduce inequality?
- How do we bridge the growing inter-generational divide?
At this event, the key findings of this collaborative research project will be presented, in addition to an engagement with key stakeholders on issues related to social cohesion and inequality.
The event will take place at the MTN Solutions Space in Philippi Village, Cape Town, on 8 February 2018, from 09h00 to 13h30.
