A Survey of Views on the Social Justice Sector in South African from 1994 to 2020 and beyond.
South Africa is in its 25th year of democracy. One societal change that we have witnessed is the change within the social justice sector of civil society. To many it has changed from the broad- based united front of volunteers that fought for liberation from Apartheid, to a more 'professionalised' NGO sector. There is a lot that of anecdotal information about the sector, but little that has been widely published especially in the form of documentation of its learnings and lessons. The data from this survey will form part of a final Review Report that will be published later in 2020. This report will contain a literature review, as well as responses to around 50 interviews conducted between May and July 2020. This survey has been developed to clarify some of the initial analysis of about 50 interviews that were conducted between May and July 2020.
This survey will ask for your response to questions and reflections on statements posed on the Social Justice Sector, with a specific focus on the period between 1994 and 2020. The survey will include questions on the coherence and consciousness of the sector, the focus of its work, the tools used to achieve its strategies, and the extent to which there has been internal transformation of the sector of gender, race and class. We will also ask your views on the adequacy of sector the funding, and finally we shall your views on the relevance of and specific roles that the sector could play in response to the impact and effects of the Covid - 19 pandemic.
