Building the Rainbow Nation

  • Diane E. Eynon


South Africa is a country that has gone through significant changes since 1994. The new government, led by the ANC, set out to transform the country. This chapter looks at the key initiatives that new government undertook to rebuild the country: the writing of a new constitution, the development of macroeconomic growth and development policies, the dismantling and restructuring of the higher education system, and the building of a national framework for gender equality and the empowerment of women.
