    Interesting feedback on the importance of bonding in early infanthood. Presentations on projects from Gauteng - can these be replicated in other municipal settings? 

    On 19 April 2018 we will host a further seminar where Katharine Frost from Ububele will present on the theoretical underpinnings of the approach taken to further build up our understanding of these projects. South Africa’s ECD policy is progressive but there remains a gap between policy and intervention/implementation. The centrality of relationships i.e. attachments in the first 1000 days of a child’s life is acknowledged, but this knowledge needs to be translated into practice. A case example will be presented where attachment theory has been integrated into a project and where there is now some evidence to support its effectiveness.

    The HSRC seminar series is funded by the Department of Science and Technology (DST). The views and opinions expressed therein as well as findings and statements of the seminar series do not necessarily represent the views of the DST.

  • The question that has been raised this week is whether it is possible to increase funding for universities. Most mainstream analysts, commentators in the media, and the higher education minister have suggested it is not. However, analysis by the South African Institute of Race Relations suggests it is, if government spending priorities can be adjusted.
