Abstract

South African policy development and related processes were heavily influenced by apartheid prior to 1994. Apartheid involved a variety of interventions and commitments aimed at the segregation of society, the most significant of which was the allocation of public resources according to racial status. In 2008 the new policy framework is guided by the need for transformation and major steps are being taken to address inequalities in health, education, welfare and economy. This requires a fundamental shift in policy development and implementation. The purpose of this chapter is to analyze meanings, concepts and possible frameworks.
