Institute for Security Studies
The Institute for Security Studies is a leading African organisation that enhances human security to enable sustainable development and economic prosperity in Africa. It works across the continent, doing authoritative research, providing expert policy advice and delivering practical training and technical assistance.
In October the term of South Africa’s Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela, comes to an end. A public debate is needed to ensure that her successor is committed to the Constitution and the rule of law.
Citizens can make submissions to Parliament and influence the process.
This will be an important reminder that Chapter 9 institutions in general need support and scrutiny to ensure they fulfil their Constitutional mandates. The discussion will focus on citizen involvement in appointment processes and the efficacy of Chapter 9 institutions in general.
