South Africa is burning. Literally. The upcoming local government elections threaten to provoke even more widespread violence. Despite being a constitutional democracy, citizens and residents feel that their voices are not being heard and the dire economic situation facing ordinary people is escalating tensions. We need leaders to step up and enter into a Constitutional Dialogue that renews our commitment to a non-racist, non-sexist society where life has improved for all.
The HSRC is hosting its 4th Racism Dialogue panel discussion in Port Elizabeth today (Tuesday, 28 June).
We would like to invite journalists to attend an extraordinary two-day seminar on 30 June and 1 July during which the escalating number of community protests will be analysed and discussed.

The 2013/14 R&D survey shows that gross expenditure on research and development (GERD) has increased in nominal terms in South Africa for the third consecutive year after the contraction in the 2009/10 and 2010/11 survey years. This is an indication that the R&D expenditure trend has stabilised. These trends reflect the general pattern of domestic economic growth and track the global trend in R&D expenditure.
