Arresting Dissent: State Repression and Post-Apartheid Social Movements

The following paper documents a research project, spanning a period of eight months. In the study, three urban, poor communities that have experienced, and continue to experience, conflict with the state over basic socio-economic struggles are presented as case studies. Through interviews, community organization materials and qualitative research analysis, the various activities, organizational trajectories and emergent relationships with the state, private sector and other actors in civil society (local, national and international) are presented and analyzed.
