Description

"This book is about accountability and the monitoring of government policy. In a systematic critique of the way in which the South African government has implemented the Bill of Rights over the past number of years, Mandla in fact demands accountability. He says in effect that the authorities must not only accept the actualisation of the Bill of Rights, but that those who are tasked to monitor the fulfilmentĀ of socio-economic rights, must carry that task out dutifully and diligently. This publication will undoubtedly enrich and deepen existing debates on public accountability. It will be of value to policy analysts and decision makers as well as to all civic-minded South Africans" [Back cover]
