More Continuity Than Change? Reconfiguring Relations between ANC and Civil Society Post-Polokwane

"The material in this Policy Brief is drawn largely from this research, and opinions cited emanate from the interviews on which the research was based. The discussion interrogates perceptions of the nature and extent to which the ANC has revised its attitude towards civil society organizations, and in turn, how some organizations intend to respond. It explores whether or not strategic and programmatic changes and realignments towards the ruling party are on civil society organisations’ agendas, in order for them to more successfully impact on policy formulation and implementation."
