Socio-economic Rights Institute of South Africa

On 6 July 2018, the Socio-Economic Rights Institute of South Africa (SERI) and the South African Local Government Association (SALGA) launched two new ground-breaking research publications that dispel persistent myths associated with informal trade in South Africa, and clarify often misunderstood legal and constitutional obligations of local government in relation to informal trade.

The Socio-economic Rights Institute of South Africa (SERI) shares its submission to the Joint Committee on Constitutional Review on the expropriation of land without compensation.

Written by the Socio-economic Rights Institute of South Africa (SERI), Chapter 5 of the 2017 State of Local Governance publication discusses and analyses different organisational methods of engaging the state, supporting greater collaboration with the state and greater state accountability within the broader context of social and spatial justice.
