A Follow-Up Report on the Community Work Programme in Bokfontein

This report is based on primary research carried out by Malose Langa in Bokfontein (in the North West) in May 2014, and forms part of a broader study on the impact of the Community Work Program (CWP), a public employment initiative, on violence prevention. The aim of this research was to monitor how things have changed in Bokfontein since Langa's field work there in 2010, which at the time, concluded that the CWP played a key role in preventing  intracommunity violence as well as violence related to community protests and xenophobic attacks.
