Conquest, Constitutionalism and Democratic Contestations

Conquest, Constitutionalism and Democratic Contestations South African Perspectives MODIRI, Joel M. (University of Pretoria, South Africa)

Two decades since the enactment of South Africa's present constitution, the durability and endurance of 'past' inequalities and injustices illustrate that the 'new South Africa' - lauded as a miracle nation with the best constitution in the world - can no longer be regarded as an unqualified success. The legal and constitutional foundations of post-1994 South Africa are in a process of renegotiation that invites new and alternative perspectives and approaches. This comprehensive volume explores this process of renegotiation by engaging political and intellectual contestations circulating in South African academic and public discourse relating to continuities and discontinuities between the colonial-apartheid past and the post-1994 constitutional present. The authors analyse the moral, intellectual and political unravelling of post-1994 South African constitutionalism (as legal text and political culture) and enquire whether it has been able to respond adequately to the fundamental contradictions generated by colonisation and apartheid. They also consider how centring the historical problem of European domination and conquest in Africa - and South Africa in particular - might provide an alternative frame or lens to theorise and understand contemporary South African realities. This book marks out a complex field of contestation - involving competing histories, locations, visions and perspectives - that raises multifaceted questions regarding law, history and politics. It is the outcome of a South African Journal of Human Rights colloquium and was originally published as a special issue of the journal.
