Radical Reconciliation on TV

Disparities in income was found to be the most divisive factor in South Africa, according to findings from the 2013 SA Reconciliation Barometer survey report, titled “Confronting Exclusion: Time for Radical Reconciliation”. This finding is currently manifested as, hot on the heels of the conclusion of a five month long strike on the platinum belt, South Africa finds itself in the midst of yet another labour strike, this time lead by the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa, in which some 220 000 workers in a highly profitable sector are calling for a “living wage”. In this interview on SABC, ReconciliationBarometer project leader Dr Kim Wale argues that material inequality remains the biggest impediment to national reconciliation in South Africa and discusses the importance of “radical reconciliation” – a concept which highlights the link between the need for material transformation in conjunction with psychological bridge-building.

    this an interesting clip, which highlights SA’s complexity – it seems to me that the concept of Radical Reconciliation captures both terrifying economic inequalities in South Africa, but also the inability of many South Africans to cross racial lines to communicate and recognise others. These are important features peculiar to South Africa’s frustrated transition … the IJR has much to contribute by elaborating on these theme.
