Media

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.

IRR survey reveals universal voter dissatisfaction with ANC government delivery - IRR

17 March 2019 - The ANC national government has a negative net satisfaction score among all voters on all of six core issues – Economic Growth, Crime; Education; Healthcare; Corruption; and Land Reform – but is rated as the party best placed to deliver on five of them, the exception being fighting corruption, which a majority of voters believe the EFF would be best at.

Letter: A civil debate - Businesslive

15 March 2019 - Free speech, as the Stellenbosch debate proved, is the boldest gesture of SA optimism. Linde’s impulse to curb freedom is the first condition of pessimism.

Why pick on Israel? - South African Jewish Report

14 March 2019 - Israel is a particular target. It is, after all, where various strains of anti-Western thinking – “revolutionary”, “anti-imperialist”, anti-capitalist, Arab nationalist and Islamist (not to mention standard anti-Semitism, in some cases) – intersect as they seldom do elsewhere.

Letter: Bonkers polling? - Businesslive

14 March 2019 - All of what Everatt says about the IRR’s poll is wrong, and frankly suggests he has no idea what constitutes best polling practice these days.

The Eskom disaster - Politicsweb

Letter: Trengove's meltdown - Businesslive

13 March 2019 - Advocate Wim Trengove’s proposals to the ad hoc parliamentary committee charged with crafting a constitutional amendment to allow expropriation without compensation (EWC) are damaging, naive and often mistaken on the law.

No grounds for sanitising Apartheid’s tragic and callous history – IRR

12 March 2019 - The Institute of Race Relations (IRR) has noted the content of a documentary on land reform produced by AfriForum, which seemingly sanitises the motives behind Apartheid and the brutality of its practices. We wish to place on record that the IRR, founded in 1929 to oppose racial discrimination and work towards a non-racial future, unreservedly repudiates these sentiments.

Ideas should be heard, whether Bullard’s or Mngxitama’s – IRR - The Citizen

11 March 2019 - It takes courage to be willing to be offended and reply with reason. That is what freedom means. Outlawing what might offend us only enfeebles and disables reason itself. The implications should weigh heavily on us, because to wish for unanimity is to wish for tyranny; to actively seek the first is, by degrees, to achieve the second. In everything we do – including sharing a platform with David Bullard in Stellenbosch on Wednesday – the IRR seeks to give South Africans the courage to resist that fate.
