The university, in cooperation with the Public Affairs Research Institute (PARI), recently presented a workshop on new communities in the Free State and Gauteng. A variety of subjects, which explored the anthropology, sociology and history of the two provinces, were debated at the workshop. Discussions were held on the challenges faced by new communities, with the socio-economic and religious aspects of new communities coming under scrutiny. Environmental issues and responsibilities also came under fire and speakers agreed that individuals need to get involved in the community and that they should do something to address the housing and food shortage in South Africa.
