    Virtual Event: 'Africa / Human rights / Transformation' a conversation

    ‘Africa / Human rights / Transformation’ – A conversation with Johan Froneman, Dhaya Pillay and Toyin Falola Moderator: Karin Van Marle

    What do Africa, human rights and transformation have to do with one another? Are human rights instruments for transformation in Africa, neo-colonial impositions or the last refuge of the privileged? Is transformation a desirable goal for Africa or a red herring, to make us forget about the real work, decolonisation? The panel will discuss these and related issues from their perspectives as judges, academics and politically aware Africans of different hues and origins.

    Toyin Falola is the Jacob and Frances Sanger Mossiker Chair in the Humanities at the University of Texas, Austin and an extraordinary professor in the Free State Centre for Human Rights, University of the Free State. Dhaya Pillay is a judge of the High Court of South Africa (KwaZulu-Natal), Commissioner on the Independent Electoral Commission and extraordinary professor in the Free State Centre for Human Rights, University of the Free State. Johan Froneman is a retired judge of the Constitutional Court of South Africa and extraordinary professor in the Department of Public Law at the University of the Free State. Karin van Marle is professor of jurisprudence at the University of the Free State.
