Constitutional Insights: Creating a participatory democracy
Host: Ferial Haffajee, Associate Editor, Daily Maverick Panellists: William Gumede, Associate Professor, School of Governance at the University of the Witwatersrand; and Geo Quinot, Professor of Law at Stellenbosch University.
As we approach the 2024 national elections in South Africa, participatory democracy becomes even more crucial in our endeavour to establish a fair and all-encompassing society. These elections serve as a significant opportunity for us, as conscientious citizens and leaders, to actively engage in shaping the future of our nation.
Participatory democracy plays a vital role as a fundamental pillar in our pursuit of creating a just and inclusive society. It goes beyond the traditional concept of representative democracy, where elected officials make decisions on behalf of the people.
Join us on Wednesday, 26 July, where a panel of experts will delve into the intricacies of participatory democracy as envisioned by our Constitution. In this enlightening session they will share their perspectives on the invaluable insights presented by Justice Albie Sachs, a distinguished former judge of the Constitutional Court.
