Abstract

The aim of this article is to tease out some theoretical and policy issues that require consideration in South Africa's attempt to build a developmental state. Theoretical issues have been largely neglected in the public debate, and the authors have focused on the policy issues that we believe require urgent attention if South Africa is to construct a state that can be regarded as developmental.
