Transformation Audit 2012 The Youth Dividend Unlocking the Potential of Young South Africans

"This edition of the Transformation Audit makes young people its focal point; accordingly, most of the articles have been written or co-written by emerging young scholars and practitioners. The review articles are incisive, and the opinion articles highly provocative, which is in line with our objective to provide deeper insight, but also to get South Africans talking. As in previous years, the format consists of four chapters that look at broader macro-economic developments, the labour market, skills and education, and poverty and equality. Unlike the previous edition, we did not include a public opinion chapter, given that the 2012 SA Reconciliation Barometer Survey only includes those questions relating to socioeconomic justice on a biennial basis. This chapter, therefore, will feature once again in the 2013 Transformation Audit."
