  • South Africa’s transition to democracy was met by the global audience at first with disbelief, followed later by applause. This transition is as much a peace process as one of democratization. After fifteen years of democracy big questions remain: has a more democratic regime also led to a more liberal society? And has democracy made for a more peaceful society? We address these questions through survey research of public attitudes and values in South Africa covering the transition from 1981 to 2006, and an elite survey covering the years from 1990 to 2007.

  • Pierre du Toit is a Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. In 1992 he was awarded a Peace Fellowship from the Jennings Randolph Program for International Peace at the United States Institute of Peace in Washington, with a focus on the role of the state in democratic transitions. The results of this research were published in the book State Building and Democracy in Southern Africa – Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa (1995). His subsequent research has been on the durability of negotiated peace settlements. His latest book on this topic is South Africa's Brittle Peace: The Problem of Post-Settlement Violence (2001).

    Hennie Kotze is a Professor of Politics and Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa.

Prospects for 1999 and Beyond and Consolidating Democracy: What Role for Civil Society in South Africa, as well as more than 60 articles in national and international journals on comparative political behavior, public policy and South African politics.
