Join us for an engaging evening of exploration at the Gqeberha launch of 'The D-Word – Perspectives on Democracy in Tumultuous Times.' 📖 Edited by Prof van der Westhuizen from Nelson Mandela University's Centre for the Advancement of Non-Racialism and Democracy (CANRAD), with Dr Siphiwe Dube (University of the Witwatersrand) and Prof Zwelethu Jolobe (University of Cape Town), this book offers valuable insights into the current state of democratic governance.

“The D-Word is a timely contribution addressing burning questions: are current contestations about the relevance of democracy due to systemic flaws in how it is constituted, received, practised and even imagined, and can the democratic ‘project’ be salvaged?” – Prof Sandy Africa, University of Pretoria

Delve into these pressing questions alongside our esteemed speakers:

  • Prof Christi van der Westhuizen (lead editor, Mandela University)
  • Prof Isaac Khambule (contributor, Wits University)
  • Ms Zukiswa Kota (contributor, Rhodes University)
  • Dr Mnqobi Ngubane (contributor, Mandela University)
  • Mr Allan Zinn (coordinator, Mandela University Press)
