South Africa’s democratic path has been complicated by deep tensions between its stubborn legacy of massive inequalities and institutional decay. In this symposium, prominent experts engage with authors of the recently published Carnegie paper, “South Africa: When Strong Institutions and Massive Inequalities Collide,” to probe these tensions and the prospects for South Africa's political and economic future.

This event is being held in collaboration with The Nelson Mandela School of Public Governance at the University of Cape Town.
