The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) is
pleased to invite you to the launch of its research report on Reimagining Basic Education in South Africa:
Lessons from the Eastern Cape. The aim of this research project was

Eastern Capeset out to explore the roles of politics, governance,
accountability and power in transforming the education systems inherited from
apartheid. The Eastern Cape was chosen as a case study because it
reveals the fault lines established by apartheid and colonialism.
project seeks to enable various stakeholders, ranging from national and
provincial government departments, educational institutions and policymakers,
to have a better understanding of how the past twenty years have shaped
educational change in South Africa and also to identify lessons that can inform
