As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, South Africa is three years away from celebrating twenty years of freedom. The likelihood is that the African National Congress (ANC) will be celebrating twenty years in power.  What have those twenty years meant to South Africa?
Has freedom delivered a better life for all 
South Africans?
Is a developmental state that effectively 
delivers on a social and economic transformation agenda linked to making the country competitive as an emerging power within the realm 
of possibility in South Africa?
Is there a future for the ANC-COSATU 
(Congress of South African Trade Unions)-
SACP (South African Communist Party) 
What is South Africa’s position in the changing 
balance of global forces?
