The workshop is intended to reflect on community protests. Although these protests have been often associated with service delivery, research by Alexander et al. (2010) shows that these protests are not just about service delivery, but amounted to a rebellion of the poor. In order to gain further understanding of these protests and their causes, Prof P Alexander established a new research project, building on insights gained from an earlier study that appeared in the book, Class in Soweto (2013), which has recently been awarded the NIHSS prize for best edited book.
