Participatory Leadership in South Africa

Chris Corrigan

Usually its easy for me to write about these kinds of workshops, but I have to say that South Africa is an overwhelming context. The other is a team of people who work with distance learning at the University of South Africa (UNISA). I think South Africa is a country that exists only because of partnerships and particiption. And secondly, like Estonia, South Africa is an emerging country and as such it is trying to perform well on the world stage.

Random thoughts about South Africa

Chris Corrigan

The museum really traces the history of apartheid from 1948 until the Constitution was completed in 1996, with a post script about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and modern day South Africa. There is a whol gallery focused on the violence of the early 1990s that almost took South Africa to the point of no return. Over the past week I have noticed that South Africans do not tell stories with happy endings.

A Kiwi Blessing for a New South African

Michael Sampson - Currents

One of my friends in South Africa has just had a new son. He's very sports-keen, so this seemed like an appropriate blessing for his new little one: " May he grow to be a great landowner in South Africa, May he live to see a free and prosperous country, May he live to see the Springboks beat the All Blacks, and may he have grace to accept that two out of three isn't too bad. ".

Organising Knowledge>> Misclassification as an Act of Power

Green Chameleon

It can be used on people (as the apartheid regime in South Africa taught us) to exclude them from equal benefits, to impose sanctions, or to find excuses for genocide. It’s one thing to get the taxonomy right. It’s quite another to ensure that it is applied correctly, and that content is classified as intended. In my book I talk about classification as an act of power.
