Centre for the Advancement of Non-racialism and Democracy

A march against racism at NMMU in 2008 was followed by a call from its Vice-Chancellor, Prof Derrick Swartz, to initiate a centre focusing on the study of non-racialism and democracy. The idea of the Centre stems from the grave concern that the issue of racism has not been given enough scholarly attention in South Africa. As a result, the Centre will seek to harness institutional expertise in research, teaching and learning, and provide evidence-based support for interventions in advancing non-racialism and democracy.
