About Us

The Centre for Social Change (CSC) focusses on social change in South Africa, but also undertakes comparative and theoretical study. While interested in the broad dyna mics of social transformation, its main strength lies in ‘change from below’ – social movements, protests, strikes.

As such and as an extension of the CSC’s mandate to better understand the evolving nature of social change, The South African Research Chair in Social Change is interdisciplinary. The Chair achieves this by including people whose main background is in sociology, history, development studies, political economy, anthropology, politics, socio-linguistics and geography.
