RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PARTY AND STATE
This paper covers a complex issue; and the hope is that it will add some value to ongoing discourse on the post-colonial state
The content is informed by South Africa’s experience, and specific references include: ANC Strategy and Tactics document, Discussion Document on Balance of Forces for the 2015 NGC, and some papers on the state of the South Africa state and ‘sins of incumbency’.
It may as well be that some of the issue being raised have been aired in previous lectures. The hope is that this will add a different nuance; but more critically, also help to ensure that what has been learned over the past fortnight hangs together, at a conceptual and generic level.
