2012 SA Reconciliation Barometer survey conducted by the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR) to be released 6 Dec

In the lead-up to the ANC national conference in Mangaung, that young South Africans want to participate in politics - but on their own terms. With two-thirds of the population under 35 years, parties should take note that conventional politicking doesn’t guarantee votes from the ‘Facebook generation’.

Youth lack confidence in political parties, distrust leaders and believe corruption is widespread.

The Reconciliation Barometer is the only survey in South Africa that provides a measure of progress in reconciliation since the transition to democracy in 1994. Read and learn more about this factor in political life in South Africa by following the media coverage of the survey.

The IJR will release the report on 6 December 2012 to the media at a press conference at the offices of HWB in Greenpoint, Cape Town.
