What Do South Africans Say about Mandela, Politics, and the Future?

< back to Freedom At Issue Blog

In this video blog, Freedom House consultant Professor Susan Booysen discusses how South Africans view Nelson Mandela’s lasting impact on democracy, how they compare his rule with that of the current ANC government, and what effects they expect his passing to have on South African politics.

This discussion is based on findings from Twenty Years of South African Democracy, a new research study in which Freedom House examines public opinion on human rights, the rule of law, democracy, and politics.
