African languages in a digital age : challenges and opportunities for indigenous language computing by Donald Zhang Osborn( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With increasing numbers of computers and penetration of the Internet around the world, localization of the technology and the content it carries into the many languages people speak is becoming an ever more important area for discussion and action. Localization, simply put, includes translation and cultural adaptation of user interfaces and software applications, as well as creation and translation of internet content in diverse languages. It is essential in making information and communication technology more accessible to the populations of the poorer countries, increasing its relevance to t
The South African society : realities and future prospects by Human Sciences Research Council( Book )

6 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the end product of an investigation into human relations - a matter that has become increasingly topical on a national level in South Africa. The investigation was undertaken over a period of more than four years and researchers from all parts of the country participated in it on a partnership basis. The researchers represented 15 universities, the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) and several other organizations. The multidisciplinary approach employed, involved some 20 academic disciplines. The HSRC Investigation into Intergroup Relations is the third investigation to be undertaken on a co-operative basis of this nature. The preceding two large-scale co-operative research programmes were the HSRC Investigation into Education executed under the direction of Prof J.P. de Lange of the Rand Afrikaans University and the HSRC Sports Investigation executed under the direction of Prof. G.J.L. Scholtz of Potchefstroom University for CHE. these two investigations were undertaken respectively at the request of the Cabinet and the Minister of National Education. The HSRC Investigation into Intergroup Relations was, however, not initiated by a request received for such research but was launched entirely on the initiative of the HSRC

Governance in the 21st century( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Will Africa's recuperative powers have dispelled the shadows of historically imposed predicaments by the end of the century? This question is at the core of this first volume in the series, in which contributors wrestle with 'lived realities' related to the unfolding process of democratic transformation across the African continent. The volume interrogates a range of issues: knowledge and its transformation; the need to manage natural resources; the economy viewed through the lens of actual livelihoods; other thorny challenges affecting social well-being in Africa and Africa's relationship with the rest of the world. In the early part of this 21st century, colonial legacies continue to circumscribe many of the hopes and aspirations pinned on democracy by people of the African continent. The challenges of the African state cannot always be explained through reference to the past, and the contributors put forward strong arguments for self-reliance among African people, ethical leadership, economic democracy, the indigenisation of knowledge and institutional reform

Policy options for a new South Africa by Fanie Cloete( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book follows a fresh approach to policy studies. In contrast to other studies in this field which normally promote single substitute proposals to address a specific policy issue, this volume stresses the open-ended nature of policy making by identifying and assessing alternate policies which may be considered, given different value assumptions by policy makers. It is the most compehensive attempt yet to present a comparative analysis and assessment of what experts regard as the most realistic and feasible alternative policy routes to social, political and economic transformation. The inter-related nature of policy making (the fact that changes in one sector affect other sectors of society), is stressed throughout the analyses. Some theoretical perspectives on policy making are also given, to summarise the existing state of the art for the reader. It is intended for decision-makers in all spheres of society involved with the issues in question, for scholars and students who study these issues, for opinion-makers who want to keep abreast with the various policy options available and their implications, and also for the layman who is interested in what promises or threats the future may hold
Constructing a democratic developmental state in South Africa : potentials and challenges by Omano Edigheji( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The social and economic successes of Asia have drawn global attention to the developmental state as a possible model for developing countries. In South Africa, many, including government, see this as a possible panacea to the country's social, economic and institutional crises. However, a government committing itself to constructing a developmental state is one thing; actually implementing the necessary institutional and policy reforms to bring that into reality is another. In this seminal collection, an interdisciplinary team of distinguished scholars examine how South Africa could go about building a democratic developmental state, while drawing on relevant conceptual models and useful comparative experiences from other countries. The macro- and microeconomic questions, as well as the institutional, governance and social challenges facing South Africa are lucidly analysed, as are the country's advantages; such as its existing constitutional democracy, rents from its mineral resources and the commitment of its political leadership to creating a democratic developmental state. Providing an eloquent and intelligent account of what the state's primary goals should be at this point, the contributors make the case that for South Africa to become a developmental state that is both democratic and socially inclusive, economic and social policy have to be intertwined; development and democratic agendas have to be mutually reinforcing; and a competent bureaucracy needs to be built to enhance state capacity
Sexual abuse of young children in southern Africa( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With contributions from leading legal and policy researchers, clinical practitioners and child development specialists in southern Africa, this volume is an invitation to reflect on the many-sided nature of sexual abuse of young children. Many of the contributors propose effective ways to prevent abuse or improve care and services for the many affected children and their families. The book is in five parts. The opening section confronts the realities of sexual abuse of pre-pubertal children and the way abuse is represented in the press. The second section discusses the individual and socio-cultural causes of child sexual abuse. Section three covers legal and policy responses to the problem, while the fourth section presents a series of accounts of interventions on behalf of abused children drawn from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. The book concludes with some critical reflections on research in this area

Cleaner energy, cooler climate : developing sustainable energy solutions for South Africa by Harald Winkler( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Energy and climate change are issues of critical importance for shaping a sustainable future, both in South Africa and globally. For South Africa, finding a policy approach which balances the increasing demand for energy with the need for sustainability, equity and climate change mitigation is a particular challenge. This book provides an innovative and strategic approach to climate policy, with local development objectives as its starting point. Through energy modelling, indicators of sustainable development and policy analysis, Harald Winkler builds a rich and detailed case study illustrating how a development-focused approach to energy and climate policy might work in South Africa. Moreover, with recent record-setting global crude oil prices, this book points out that making energy supply and use more sustainable is a central challenge in South Africa's future development path. An energy researcher, IPCC author (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) and a member of the South African delegation to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, Winkler offers a nuanced examination of where the synergies and trade-offs lie, and makes clear the imperative of considering long-term implications when meeting short-term needs
Reflections on the origins of black consciousness in South Africa by Themba Sono( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book traces the origins of Black Consciousness in South Africa between the late sixties and the early seventies. It locates the political rationale for its emergence in white racism - particularly in its extreme form - apartheid. Blacks had only limited avenues to express their hopes, vent their feelings and act out their beliefs through the separatist, segregated structures created by this virulent strain of white racism
Provision of education in the RSA : report of the main committee of the HSRC investigation into education by Human sciences research council (Pretoria)( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The term the Cold War has had many meanings and interpretations since it was originally coined and has been used to analyse everything from comics to pro-natalist policies, and science fiction to gender politics ... Jeremy Black begins his overview in 1917 and covers the 'long Cold War', from the 7th November Revolution to the ongoing repercussions and reverberations of the conflict today. The book is forward-looking as well as retrospective, not least in encouraging us to reflect on how much the character of the present world owes to the Cold War."--From publisher description
