Forum

CANCELLED: The Power of Human Rights and Power Politics in the UNSC

The Foreign Policy Forum: Regional Powers in Global Politics accompanies South Africa's membership in the UN Security Council during 2019-2020. It consists of a series of six round tables each dedicated to a particular theme. The overarching topic is the role of regional powers in global affairs which is characterized by a return of great power politics and erosion of multilateralism. Each round table consists of a select group of local and international experts. In this fourth event we are discussing the role human rights are playing in the Security Council. Key questions to be discussed are: Is the UN Security Council the right place to discuss human rights issues? Should human rights issues be discussed more frequently? How to discuss human rights violations with great powers? Is there an instrumentalization of human rights for power politics?

Discussion

Are refugees unwelcome in South Africa?

Exploring the ramifications of the Refugees Amendment Act
More about the forum: South Africa is home to many refugees who are fleeing persecution and conflict in their countries of origin, predominantly coming from elsewhere in Africa.

SA Ubuntu Networking Breakfast with Roelf Meyer

How State and Private Sector can change SA together
‘Raise hope’ was the rallying cry of Roelf Meyer’s speech on South Africa’s financial and social crisis. Too many South Africans, wealthy and poor, do not believe in the return to health of South Africa’s economy. On 7th of August 2019 the famous negotiator Roelf Meyer inspired the attendees of this UBUNTU breakfast to shape the future of South Africa for the better.

The SAIFAC Africa Forum - Can the Democratic Republic of the Congo become a democracy?

Many in the international community have hailed the December 2018 elections in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) as the first-ever peaceful hand-over of power in the post-independence era in the DRC affected through elections. Numerous dissenting voices claim that the elections were a sham – ‘an electoral coup’ – and have only endorsed an illegitimate leadership. Who is correct?
