Fragility and the State: Post-apartheid South Africa and the State-Society Contract in the 21st Century
Journal article, Created By Connolly, Lesley and Published By ACCORD in English language
This article looks at the political system in South Africa and argues that the country is possibly moving towards a condition of state fragility. In particular, the author suggests that the increase in service-delivery protests and the changing nature of politics in the country show that the contract between the state and society is weakening, leading to increasing state fragility.
