17 February: presentation by Dr Jakkie Cilliers on South Africa’s future

On the 17th of February the Institute for Security Studies, in collaboration with the Catholic Parliamentary Liaison Office and the Hanns Seidel Foundation hosted a presentation by Dr Jakkie Cilliers on South Africa’s future. In his paper, titled ‘South African Futures 2030’, Dr Cilliers has identified three scenarios: ‘Madiba Magic’, in which South Africa develops rapidly; ‘Bafana Bafana’ in which South Africa continues to underachieve and becomes a distinctly second tier state, and ‘A Nation Divided’ in which the economy stagnates, crime spirals out of control and inequality remains rife.
