Abstract:This volume engages with conceptual, contextual and policy issues relating to the question of how South Africa can become a developmental State. It addresses the question of the institutional architecture that South Africa needs to construct to become a developmental State and points to some of the policies that need to be promoted in order to address the current levels of poverty, inequality and unemployment as well as to diversify the economy beyond its current dependence on mineral resources and reverse the process of deindustrialization. The chapters are organized in five parts: 1. Conceptual issues and historical experiences (Peter B. Evans, Thandika Mkandawire, Ha-Joon Chang, Eun Mee Kim (on South Korea), Jonathon W. Moses (on Norway)); 2. Policy-making and economic governance in South Africa (Seeraj Mohamed, Ben Fine, Anthony Butler); 3. South Africa's macroeconomic and industrial policy landscapes (Kenneth Creamer, Simon Roberts); 4. Social policy and its institutional underpinnings in South Africa: what hope for a developmental State? (Karl von Holdt on postapartheid bureaucracy, Salim Akoojee on intermediate skills development); 5. Agrarian reform (Sam Moyo). [ASC Leiden abstract]
