Postgraduate studies

In light of the problems facing South Africa on political, economic, and socio-cultural domains, it is clear that the demand for new scientific knowledge in the field of governance and political transformation is unlimited. The reason is that governance refers to the process and manner of making rules and decisions for society and the manner in which government governs society. This includes government mechanisms, institutions and different actors (public private partnerships), as well as networks functioning in different spheres (local, provincial, and national). Governance includes values and belief systems. Good governance focuses on public participation, rule of law, transparency, responsibility, accountability, effectiveness, and efficiency.
