Abstract

The intention with this foreword is to lift out, to put into perspective, the challenges of the understandings, intentionalities, and negotiations that animated this distinct South African instance of partnering. The chapter briefly sketches the sociological context of South Africa. Without a sense of this context, the reader will fail to grasp hoe the very acts of understanding, intentionality and negotiation are historically constituted as staging points of power. The second part looks at the UCT-Khayelitsha relationship against this historical backdrop.
