Join Brigalia Bam for a CCR Public Dialogue on the Role of Chapter Nine Institutions in Cape Town

Democracy - More Than Just ElectionsThe Centre for Conflict Resolution (CCR), in partnership with the Foundation for Human Rights (FHR), invites you to a public dialogue with the former chairperson of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC), Brigalia Bam.

The discussion is centred around the topic, “The Role of Chapter Nine Institutions: Have They Fulfilled Their Constitutional Mandate?”, and will be chaired by Professor Barney Pityana, President of Convocation at the University of Cape Town. Joining Bam on the panel is Mfanozelwe Shozi, chairperson of the Commission for Gender Equality.

This public dialogue seeks to foster open discussion on how South Africa’s democracy is benefiting from, and why more resources need to be allocated to chapter nine institutions, such as the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities; the Commission for Gender Equality; the Auditor-General; the Electoral Commission; and an independent broadcast regulation authority.

The event will take place at the Centre for the Book on Thursday, 8 October, from 5:30 to 7 PM.

Don’t miss it!
