Abstract

Race featured prominently at the recent Social Cohesion Summit in Soweto hosted by the Department of Arts and Culture. The summit highlighted the importance of improving race relations in the Rainbow Nation and raised questions about the extent of the country's progress towards racial harmony. To answer these questions, Steven Gordon, Ben Roberts and Jare Struwig present findings from the annual South African Social Attitudes Survey (SASAS), revealing signs of growing racial tolerance, especially among the young.
