Albie Sachs and transformation in South Africa : from revolutionary activist to constitutional court judge by Drucilla Cornell( )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many critical theorists talk and write about the day after the revolution, but few have actually participated in the constitution of a revolutionary government. Emeritus Justice Albie Sachs was a freedom fighter for most of his life. He then played a major role in the negotiating committee for the new constitution of South Africa, and was subsequently appointed to the new Constitutional Court of South Africa. Therefore, the question of what it means to make the transition from a freedom fighter to a participant in a revolutionary government is not abstract, in Hegel's sense of the word, it is
The limits of transition : the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission 20 years on by Mia Swart( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission was a noble attempt to begin to address the continuing traumatic legacy of Apartheid. This interdisciplinary collection critiques the work of the TRC 20 years since its establishment. Taking the paralysing political and social crises of the mid-1990s in South Africa as starting point, the book contains a collection of responses to the TRC that considers the notions of crisis, judgment and social justice. It asks whether the current political and social crises in South Africa are linked to the country?s post-apartheid transitional mechanisms, specifically, the TRC. The fact that the material conditions of the lives of many Apartheid victims have not improved, forms a major theme of the book. Collectively, the book considers the?unfinished business? of the TRC

Pulp fictions : race, ideology and the university( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Keeping with its robust dialogic spirit, this edition of PULP Fictions plays host to a diverse range of voices and perspectives. Responding to the events surrounding the publication of a controversial article by Louise Mabille, four authors from diverse (subject) positions in and outside of the University - Alfred Moraka, Gillian Schutte, Quraysha Ishmail-Sooliman and Jaco Oelofse - focus on the issue of race and racial ideology in the University space. While Moraka engages with selected theories on the meaning and conceptualisation of racism and its relation to power, history and subject formation, Oelofse attends to the racially structured nature of knowledge and its perpetuation of white cultural domination. Schutte offers a searing refelction on whiteness in the 'new' South Africa and Sooliman amplifies the problem of Islamophobia and seeks to draw out its association to, and as, racism."--Editorial, page 3

‘n Tentatiewe gemeenskap en die demokrasie wat moet kom – ‘n regsfilosofiese ondersoek (Afrikaans) by Karin van Marle( )

1 edition published in 2013 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation contemplates the possibility of a relationship between democracy and the democracy to come experienced from within an inoperative community of law students. The reason for this contemplation is to ascertain to what extent lawyers and law students in particular can contribute to transformation in South Africa. With transformation I envision the ongoing questioning of well known identities, opening up the structure for discourse on new possibilities of meaning. The relationship envisioned by a democracy in waiting of the democracy to come constitutes transformation. I investigate the radical and transcendental nature of human rights and democracy, to show the potential within these concepts to encompass transformation. The nature of these concepts will however allow misuse and manipulation which will be detrimental to the pursuit of transformation and democracy to come. Due to the legal nature of human rights and their entrenchment in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, lawyers will by means of legal interpretation be responsible for the fixture of meaning of these concepts. Even though I do not argue for a definite distinction, I identify two aspects which may influence the way in which lawyers perform legal interpretation: the structure of the law and the cultural aspect of the law or legal culture. The focus is on legal culture, as a form of community of lawyers. Due to the traditionally conservative approach of South African legal culture to legal interpretation, transformative constitutionalism, a project by means of which lawyers partake in social and political projects by means of legal interpretation, is hindered. I argue that the transformation of legal culture in itself can occur at the foundations of legal culture: tertiary legal education. I argue that law students serve as a community in which legal culture is founded continuously by means of confirmation, instead of critical contestation. Law students are unaware of the im

Disasters of peace : an exchange by C. H Heyns( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"During the last part of 2004 and first part of 2005, the Faculty of Law of the University of Pretoria moved to a new building on campus. The artworks at the new building sparked strong controversy in the Faculty. Two members of the Faculty, who found themselves to be in disagreement on some of the issues raised in this debate, set out their views during the Arts and Reconciliation Festival and Conference at the University of Pretoria in 16 March 2005. Reprinted here are edited versions of their papers."
Rekonstruktiewe feminisme : 'n ondersoek na die reg as manlike struktuur en die moonlikheid van transformasie met spesifieke verwysing na pornografie by Karin van Marle( )

1 edition published in 1995 in Afrikaans and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The main focus of this study is Benhabib' s concepts of the 'concrete other' and 'interactive' universalism, Cornell's 'ethical' feminist thought and Nedelsky's argument on 'rights as relationship'. The need for an affirmation of the feminine is emphasised. I argue that we should strive towards a 'new choreography of sexual difference' based on the ethical view that 'woman' cannot be described in the present. She is the beyond. My study explore the implications of ethical feminism for the possibility of the transformation of a legal system and society as a whole. In this regard it lays particular emphasis on Derrida's concept of 'justice as aporia' and justice as limit to a legal system. I discuss pornography as a concrete example of texts that may either frustrate transformation or contribute to it. I argue in . this regard that pornography should not be banned but that access to pornography should be subjected to restrictions. This approach will serve the ambigious nature of pornography as both a threat to and a vehicle for the exploration of the feminine in contemporary society
'The capabilities approach', 'the imaginary domain', and 'asymmetrical reciprocity' : feminist perspectives on equality and justice by Karin van Marle( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this article the author revisits the question of how feminist theory/theories could address questions regarding universalism, sameness, difference, and the quest for justice. She reconsiders the quest for justice and equality for women and the (im)possibilities of a feminist perspective on justice and a feminist `community'. The three feminist theorists that she discusses are Martha Nussbaum, Drucilla Cornell, and Iris Marion Young. Nussbaum is closer to a liberal defense of universal values - Cornell and Young stand critical of liberalism and focus on sublimity, dignity, and asymmetrical reciprocity. The author supports the perspective of the latter two theorists and applies these perspectives to aspects of South African equality jurisprudence
