Untitled - Securing Land Tenure In Urban And Rural South Africa (Paperback): Donna Hornby, Rosalie Kingwill, Lauren Royston,... Untitled - Securing Land Tenure In Urban And Rural South Africa (Paperback)

A title deed = tenure security. Or does it? This book challenges this simple equation and its apparently self-evident assumptions. It argues that two very different property paradigms characterise South Africa.

The first is the dominant paradigm of private property, referred to as an ‘edifice’, against which all other property regimes are measured and ranked. However, the majority of South Africans gain access to land and housing through very different processes, which this book calls social or off-register tenures. These tenures are poorly understood, a gap Untitled aims to address. The book reveals that ‘informal’ and customary property systems can be well organised, often providing substantial tenure security, but lack official recognition and support. This makes them difficult to service and vulnerable to elite capture.

Policy interventions usually aim to formalise these arrangements by issuing title deeds. The case studies in this book, which span both rural and urban contexts in South Africa, examine these interventions and the unintended consequences they often give rise to. Interventions based on an understanding of locally embedded property relations are more likely to succeed than those that attempt to transform them into registered tenures. However, emerging practices hit intractable obstacles associated with the ‘edifice’, which only a substantial transformation of the legal paradigms can overcome.

This now well established labour law text has been updated to reflect the law as of September 2017.

Labour Law Rules has provided a highly accessible text on labour, equity, social security and skills development laws over many years. It discusses these laws against a background of the country supporting the principle of ‘decent work,’ high unemployment, the insufficient creation of sustainable and decent jobs, and income inequality, all exacerbated by an increase in atypical work, skills shortages, as well as insufficient enforcement of laws.

Shaping markets through competition and economic regulation is at the heart of addressing the development challenges facing countries in southern Africa. The contributors to Competition Law And Economic Regulation: Addressing Market Power In Southern Africa critically assess the efficacy of the competition and economic regulation frameworks, including the impact of a number of the regional competition authorities in a range of sectors throughout southern Africa.

Featuring academics as well as practitioners in the field, the book addresses issues common to southern African countries, where markets are small and concentrated, with particularly high barriers to entry, and where the resources to enforce legislation against anti-competitive conduct are limited. What is needed, the contributors argue, is an understanding of competition and regional integration as part of an inclusive growth agenda for Africa. By examining competition and regulation in a single framework, and viewing this within the southern African experience, this volume adds new perspectives to the global competition literature.

It is an essential reference tool and will be of great interest to policymakers and regulators, as well as the rapidly growing ecosystem of legal practitioners and economists engaged in the field.

Brutally dragged 780 metres beneath a taxi – a young woman’s inspiring story of survival, courage, and the will to live.

13 September 2011. The story would shock thousands and be remembered by many for years to come. It would be plastered all over the papers and continue to attract interest well after the shock factor of what happened had passed. Reports and articles would be written, and “facts”, as given to reporters by some of those involved and willing to be interviewed, would be recounted and repeated in all forms of public media over the months and even years that followed. And although these versions would generate widespread outrage, none was entirely accurate.

"The stories were about me. I was there. I am Kim McCusker - the girl who was dragged by a taxi. This, as I experienced it, is the true version of events."

Both the law of testate succession and the law of intestate succession are of major importance to the administrator of an estate in determining how estate assets should be distributed.

The most important aspects of these branches of the law are regulated by legislation. There are, however, aspects of the law that are based on common law and which are not governed by legislation. These matters, such as the interpretation of wills, aspects regarding the capacity to inherit, accrual and massing are also discussed.

In a society afflicted by serious crime, South African citizens look to the SA Police Service for protection. Under the Constitution, police officials are responsible for upholding the law. The purpose of this book is to give them the knowledge and understanding that will equip them to do so.

In order to investigate crime effectively and gather evidence that will enable the prosecuting authorities secure convictions after due process of law, police officials have to be familiar with the fundamental elements of criminal law, criminal procedure and the law of evidence. These principles are set out in Applied Law for Police Officials. There is a clear focus on the implications of these laws for police procedures. Applied Law for Police Officials highlights the importance of effective co-operation between an investigating officer and the victim of crime, other witnesses and the prosecutor, which will greatly improve the chances of a successful criminal prosecution.

To exercise their powers lawfully, police officials must also be aware of the social context in which their duties are performed and of the constitutional principles of human rights, which receive attention throughout this book. With its unique practical approach, addressing legal principles specifically relevant to police officials, Applied Law for Police Officials will help them to provide an effective service to the community.

Protest Nation - The Right To Protest In South Africa (Paperback): Jane Duncan Protest Nation - The Right To Protest In South Africa (Paperback)

South Africa has become a nation defined by its protests. Protests can, and do, bring societal problems to public attention in direct, at times dramatic, ways. But governments the world over are also tempted to suppress this right, as they often feel threatened by public challenges to their authority. Apartheid South Africa had a shameful history of repressing protests. The architects of the country's democracy expressed a determination to break with this past and recognise protest as a basic democratic right. Yet, today, there is concern about the violent nature of protests.

Protest Nation challenges the dominant narrative that it has become necessary for the state to step in to limit the right to protest in the broader public interest because media and official representations have created a public perception that violence has become endemic to protests. Bringing together data gathered from municipalities, the police, protestor and activist interviews, as well as media reports, the book analyses the extent to which the right to protest is respected in democratic South Africa. It throws a spotlight on the municipal role in enabling or mostly thwarting the right.

This book is a call to action to defend the right to protest: a right that is clearly under threat. It also urges South Africans to critique the often-skewed public discourses that inform debates about protests and their limitations.
