ONLINE SEMINAR: BLACK LIVES MATTER AND POLICE BRUTALITY:WHERE TO FROM HERE?

SAIFAC AND Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung South Africa

Systemic racism and police brutality have been ongoing problems in the United States that have remained largely unaddressed despite greater attention to the issue in recent years. Since the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2013, demonstrations have highlighted the murder by police of black men across America, including Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner and Michael Brown. Police brutality connected to discriminatory attitudes are also problems outside of the United States. In South Africa, there is a long history of brutality by security forces. This has been heightened during the coronavirus lockdown with severe harassment experienced by non-South African residents (linked to high-levels of xenophobia) and incidents such as the murder of Collins Khoza.

SAIFAC (a Centre of the University of Johannesburg) and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung,SA

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought both a major health and economic crisis. In an attempt to curb the spread of the disease, many states implemented strict lockdown conditions, resulting in extreme social isolation for residents. Almost everyone across the country was forced to spend more time at home. In situations were there were difficult familial dynamics, conflict was exacerbated. The anxiety and stress of the lockdown also had an extremely negative impact on the mental health of individuals. All these factors worsened the risk of violence.
