Every week we reach hundreds of thousands of people through placing arguments in the media in support of the principles we stand for.

Ramaphosa has turned his back on South Africa’s citizens – IRR

5 May 2021 - President Cyril Ramaphosa’s defence of the ANC government’s cadre deployment policy – which has hollowed out public institutions and left millions of South Africans at the mercy of corruption, mismanagement and ineptitude – demonstrates his loyalty to party cadres at the expense of ordinary citizens.

Is RSA outdoing the USA on race relations? - Politicsweb

3 May 2021 - After the guilty verdict last month, Joe Biden said of the murder of George Floyd that it revealed “the systemic racism that is a stain on our nation’s soul”.

30 April 2021 - The IRR was alarmed at the blinding pace with which Mpumalanga politicians and national opinion-makers drew the conclusion that four white farmers were guilty of murdering two innocent black work-seekers on a farm in Eastern Mpumalanga before ascertaining even the most basic facts.

Expropriation Bill is about far more than implementation - Businesslive

22 April 2021 - The Centre for Development and Enterprise (CDE) has an enviable record of policy analysis. While we at the Institute of Race Relations (IRR) may have differences with its positions from time to time, SA would be a better and more prosperous place if its work had a greater influence on policy.

Racial hatred in Piet Retief - Politicsweb

20 April 2021 - There are two versions of how Zenzele and Mgcini Coka died on 9 April, but there was only one crowd outside the bail hearings of those the state has accused of the crime.
