Title The changing public agenda? South Africans' assessments of the country's most pressing problems
Issue 5
Publication (Day/Month/Year) 2003
Page numbers 1-4
South Africans embarked on majoritarian, multiparty politics in 1994 facing a host of complex issues, including high expectations from the newly enfranchised black majority, and fears of what these changes would bring among many in the white minority. Almost a decade later, how have South African’s perceptions of their country’s problems evolved? To what extent have their expectations – or their fears – been realized, and how successfully is the current government coping with the issues that matter most in the eyes of the public?
