La Ville Sud-Africaine Est-Elle Encore « Post-Apartheid » ? Élément De Réflexion À Partir Du Cas De Durban


  • Bill Freund


This paper addresses continuity and change in South African cities, using the example of Durban. Continuity is the norm in understanding urban history with change as a series of accretions and as layering. A series of changes is highlighted, which fit into what the deracialised growth path allows and encourages. Thus far the ANC government has shown little capacity or desire to discipline capital along the lines suggested for post-apartheid reconstruction. Larger changes are thus limited by the predilections and established discourses of the business world and the absence of more dynamic and structured public intervention.
