South Africa in world development: prospects for a human economy

I am thrilled to announce the publication of an article I co-authored with John Sharp (University of Pretoria) and Keith Hart (LSE/University of Pretoria) on South Africa in the world, in the latest issue of Anthropology Today, a high-impact anthropology journal that aims to foster anthropological engagement with current affairs and topical issues.

This is one of the many products of a collaboration with the directors of the Human Economy Programme at the University of Pretoria that has been going on for nearly two years.

The article is in many ways a partial retrospect on 20 years of democracy in South Africa; it also works as a sort of programmatic agenda for some of the crucial issues that need to be addressed on a global level by humankind, if we wish to work towards a better world for all. It is, most of all, a call for movement as a universal human right and one of the most powerful antidotes to inequality and exclusion.
