Abstract:This article summarizes the 'Road to Democracy' project carried out by the South African Democracy Education Trust (SADET). SADET was established after former president Thabo Mbeki expressed concern that there was very limited research done on the achievement of a peaceful political settlement in South Africa after decades of violent conflict. SADET's mission is, and has been, to conduct a major study of South Africa's political history between 1960 and 1994. The focus of the article is on the project's structure and on its research methodology, particularly the benefits and limitations of the use of oral interviews as the main research tool.
