Class, Race, and Inequality in South Africa

This chapter analyses the post-apartheid distributional regime in South Africa. It argues that the post-apartheid distributional regime inherited aspects of its predecessor in the form of policies that let deep inequalities persist. First, it examines the shifts in policies in the decade following democratisation in 1994 by looking at the ANC-led governments' emphasis on economic deracialisation. It then discusses budgetary redistribution at the end of the apartheid period. The chapter concludes by analysing the politics of redistribution and explaining why there was no more political pressure for a fundamental transformation of the distributional regime.

Keywords:   post-apartheid, distributional regime, South Africa, inequalities, democratisation, ANC, deracialisation, budgetary redistribution, redistribution
