  • Assessing South Africa's Food Security Strategy through a good governance
    • Abstract: Author: Sayeed, Cheryl Mohamed Pillay, Pregala Vol 32 Issue 2 Publication: 2013 Page: 84-104 Abstract: The pursuit of socio economic development lies in a governments' ability to not only formulate appropriate policy, but in its ability to efficiently and effectively engage in the management of the implementation of such policy. Good governance is a term associated with those governments who succeed in this regard. This article assesses South Africa's food security strategy and makes use of good governance as an assessment tool. The article conceptualizes good governance and uses the World Bank's Framework for good governance as a lens in assessing the successes and failures of food security strategy on poverty alleviation. The article supports food security as a good governance practice that contributes to socio-economic development and thus to improved Public Administration.

  • Against the World: South Africa and Human Rights at the United Nations
           1945-1961, Jeremy Shearar : book review
    • Abstract: Author: Motlafi, Nompumelelo Vol 32 Issue 2 Publication: 2013 Page: 105-107 Abstract: It is perhaps serendipitous that Jeremy Shearar's Against the World: South Africa and Human Rights at the United Nations 1945-1961 has come under the consideration of this reviewer on South Africa's Human Rights Day (21 March 2013), commemorating the apartheid government's killing of anti-pass demonstrators in Sharpeville in 1960. The book traces how - under white minority rule - South Africa went from having a significant role in the formation of the United Nations and playing a part in putting human rights on the international agenda, to becoming a pariah state isolated in the United Nations for its violation of the human rights of the majority of the country's population. Some of the events captured in Shearar's analysis, such as the Sharpeville killings and the Union of South Africa's withdrawal from the Commonwealth to become a fully independent Republic, are part of the living memory of some South Africans.

  • The morality and politics of humanitarian intervention with specific
           reference to the 2011 Libyan experience
    • Abstract: Author: Ruffin, Fayth Mubangizi, John C. Vol 32 Issue 2 Publication: 2013 Page: 61-83 Abstract: In this article, the discourse around humanitarian intervention involving international human rights law, morality, and politics, is considered, and a right to intervention given the rigours of sovereignty is questioned. Further issues interrogated are: if intervention takes place, should it be authorised by the United Nations or should unilateral intervention by regional organisations or a single country be permissible in the face of mass killings, genocide and similar events; and what factors drive the act or omission of unilateral intervention for humanitarian purposes' The debate around these inquiries is introduced by considering the intermeshing of world politics and international law in a substantially globalising world - with particular reference to state sovereignty and the role of the United Nations. Thereafter, the evolution of humanitarian intervention and its contemporary development is examined - in the specific context of the 2011 humanitarian intervention in Libya. This is done by examining the justifications for such intervention under international law. The legality of the intervention is explored and it is argued that the Libyan experience demonstrates that humanitarian intervention is more about morality and politics than international law. Although the lessons learned from the Libyan conflict are perhaps still unclear, it is concluded that a reformed UN Security Council may well be the global authority with auspices above powerful nation-state interests, and with the wherewithal to give meaning to international law over morality and politics in humanitarian interventions.

  • The 2012 South African school governing body and traditional council
           elections : extending franchise rights or a threat to democratic
    • Abstract: Author: Maphunye, Kealeboga J. Vol 32 Issue 2 Publication: 2013 Page: 37-60 Abstract: This article examines the relevance of South Africa's 2012 School Governing Body (SGB) and Traditional Council (TC) elections and their contribution to democratic consolidation. It assesses legal compliance and procedural fairness in these elections on the basis of a review of the literature, official reports, and articles in the media. Theoretical reflection, of course, also informs my argument. In this article, I acknowledge the fact that the government welcomed these elections as an essential part of the post-apartheid transformation of local government and education and that such polls are intended to promote electoral democracy in the country. However, the author's analysis of the procedural fairness and legal compliance issues pertaining to such elections suggest that they might be an afterthought and not treated as "major elections" that are held every five years based on the country's electoral cycle. An electoral cycle is a basic management and planning tool governing each country's elections. This article concludes that these elections deserve to be treated much more seriously than has been the case, and that there is a need to ensure their compliance with electoral legislation and due processes. Only once this is done will these elections promote electoral democracy in line with national and continental election principles and instruments.

  • State-owned enterprises on the global business stage : whither the South
           African owner-publics'
    • Abstract: Author: Tsheola, Johannes Ledwaba, Matshidisho Nembambula, Phophi Vol 32 Issue 2 Publication: 2013 Page: 20-36 Abstract: State governance is fundamental to the structuring of societal relations and the economy, especially in the determination of ownership, production and distribution of resources and wealth among the publics. But state governance involves a degree of incoherence, which manifests in bureaucratic ownership, control and capitalist structuring of state-owned enterprises (SOEs), that corporatises the state in return. Consequently, the state-capital nexus remains deeply marketized wherein determinations of the role of state and the state-market paralysis inevitably lead to reflexive developmentalism, with varieties of capitalism. The choice of state governance model is, therefore, a double-pronged challenge of the interplay of the publics' voter power and the hegemonic commercial, financial interests of companies.A democratic South Africa has trotted a development trajectory commonly characterized as state capitalism. Thus, the National Development Plan (NDP) 2030 sets the creation of a capable, ethical and developmental state as one of the fundamental 'enabling milestones', lest the state would not achieve the national development agenda. For this reason, the NDP 2030 seeks to transform and structure SOEs around clearly defined and transparent national public interest mandates as a step towards achieving the desired state governance.The dilemma, though, is in 'placing the cart before the horse' because the few SOEs that have been awarded the status of 'national champions' for the creation of a capable, ethical and developmental state, are themselves simultaneously expanding into the global business arena where they operate virtually as private multinationals.A conclusion is drawn that the NDP 2030 will merely reproduce varieties of capitalism rather than alter the corporate governance and structuring of SOEs, with the result that discrepancies between their founding public policy objectives and their conduct on the global business stage would continue unabated.

  • Paradigm-shifting events and anniversaries : postage stamps as national
           identity markers
    • Abstract: Author: Skagestad, Odd Gunnar Vol 32 Issue 2 Publication: 2013 Page: 4-19 Abstract: For most countries or nations, there are certain years that evoke collective memories of epoch-making events, to be commemorated whenever anniversaries occur. Postage stamps issued on such occasions provide a reflection of the self-image of the country or nation in question. Most unusually, South Africa in 1988 experienced three major anniversaries which were celebrated with the issuing of commemorative postage stamps, viz. Bartolomeu Dias' voyage around the Cape of Good Hope in 1488, the arrival of the Huguenot settlers in the Cape Colony in 1688, and the Great Trek in 1838. The narrative of the European colonization of the sub-continent is the common denominator of these anniversaries. Incidentally, the year 1988 also saw the 40-year anniversary of the unbroken rule by the National Party and its apartheid regime - an anniversary that did not call for any such celebration, and which by then was soon to be brought to an end. The change of the political system in 1994 brought a paradigm shift which also affected the national self-perception. Would this cause a deconstruction of the "white" paradigm and its narratives, to be replaced by an "African" perspective' Such a development might not have been entirely unexpected, as the "Rainbow Nation" of today conveys an image of self-perception which differs distinctly from that which was the case under the apartheid regime. Nevertheless, some elements of continuity seem to prevail. A political or social system may be relegated to history's "horror file", but that may not necessarily wipe out the memories of past events that shaped - for better or for worse - the preconditions that caused today's reality, nor does it necessarily preclude the acknowledgement thereof.

  • Editorial
    • Abstract: Author: Malefane, Shepherd Vol 32 Issue 2 Publication: 2013 Page: 1-3 Abstract: Just like with the previous publications of the South African Journal for Political Science and Public Administration, this journal issue presents five articles and a book review. In the first article, Skagestad sheds light about historical events that took place in 1988 in South Africa. As presented in his article, anniversaries of major historical events are observed or celebrated in various ways. Frequently the celebrations include the issuing of commemorative postage stamps, which may be seen as providing a reflection of the self-image of the country or nation in question. In the year 1988, South Africa experienced no less than three such events, with postage stamps commemorating viz. Dias' 1488 voyage around the Cape, the 1688 arrival of Huguenot settlers in the Cape, and the 1838 Great Trek. Notably, the narrative of the European colonisation of the sub-continent was the common denominator of these anniversaries. However, the collapse of the apartheid regime and the change of the South African political system in 1994 brought a paradigm shift which also affected the national self-perception. This article discusses whether this development would also cause a deconstruction of the previous "white" paradigm and its narratives, to be replaced by an "African" perspective. The article argues that although such a development would not be entirely unexpected, so far some elements of continuity nevertheless seem to prevail - as an integral part of South Africa's collective memory and a broader and more inclusive national self-image.
