The CEO of the Inclusive Society Institute, Mr Daryl Swanepoel, on Monday 27 June 2022, met with Todd Haskell, the Consul General of the United States of America in Cape Town. The Inclusive Society Institute is reaching out to the international community in order to promote collaboration on policy development and campaigns aimed at addressing the pressing global issues of the day. This includes, amongst others, climate change, the strengthening of democracy and human rights, migration, inequality and the building of cohesive societies.
Consul General Haskell and Mr Swanepoel spoke at length on actions needed to rebuild the South African economy and the strengthening of the democratic culture. They also explored ways of deepening the political and civil society dialogue between the United States and South Africa (and Africa), particularly as it relates to ensuring a globally inclusive and balanced dialogue between Africa, and the developing and developed worlds.
The Inclusive Society Institute will be reaching out to likeminded political movements, think-tanks and civil society organisations in the United States, with the objective to secure broader dialogue on matters effecting the two countries and multilateralism.
