Every week we reach hundreds of thousands of people through placing arguments in the media in support of the principles we stand for. No other advocacy group in the country does as much as we do to promote support for policies that defend your right, and that of your community, to make decisions about your own life free from counter-productive government interference.

How EWC will hit #YourBudget – IRR

25 February 2020 - The Institute of Race Relations (IRR) yesterday launched its #YourBudget campaign with a panel discussion between top economists Dawie Roodt and Lumkile Mondi, and leading financial commentator Magnus Heystek on the impact of expropriation without compensation (EWC) on the finances and budgets of ordinary South Africans.

Pity that Mahlatsi confuses IRR with Institute for Justice and Reconciliation - Sowetanlive

24 February 2020 - Malaika Mahlatsi writes boldly in "Majority of whites hold same views as De Klerk on apartheid" (SowetanLIVE, 18 February) that "(to) many white South Africans, apartheid was not a crime against humanity" and thus are "resistant to change". Unfortunately, she exposes herself as a peddler of fake news, for her cynical and damaging analysis rests on shocking errors of fact.

SA still waiting in the shade for change as race-based fixes fail - Businesslive

24 February 2020 - Only when — but not until — investment pours in, jobs grow and households have money to spend on their future, will the idea of a state committed to inclusive growth be believable to a society that can’t help but remember how bad apartheid really was ... because it is fated to continue carrying the burden.

Letter: Mike Pompeo’s views are common sense - Businesslive

20 February 2020 - Pompeo’s recommended solutions — “strong rule of law, respect for property rights, regulation that encourages investment” — are no more than common sense. SA’s attitude towards property rights will also have very real implications for its access to the US market.

One Of The Potentially Most Destabilising Endeavours Of Recent History - Weekend Argus

15 February 2020 - Perhaps the greatest irony is that – again, in theory – South Africa is committed to evidence-based policy. What passes into law must be proofed and tested for its efficacy, not merely its appeal. On one of the largest, potentially most destabilising, endeavours of recent history, the government is to all intents and purposes refusing to do so. There is no fearmongering in this. And it is a great injustice.

Do residential homeowners need to be concerned about land expropriation? - Biznews

14 February 2020 - There is a growing mood of unease and confusion in South Africa, and not for the first time. Not for the first time either, this is about Expropriation without Compensation – the notion that the government intends to accord itself the power to confiscate private property. What’s different this time is that, for a great many people, this is less a generalised concern about what the policy will mean for South Africa as a whole, and more about what the policy will mean for each of them personally.
