Working Paper No.11. Social Differentiation and Urban Governance in Greater Soweto: a case study of post-apartheid reconstruction.

Abstract

This paper explores the historical and contemporary terrain of local level struggles in post-apartheid Meadowlands, a township in Greater Soweto. It looks at the implications for urban governance of increasing social differentiation and suggests that social polarisation mitigates against sustained levels of public action.
