Southern experiences in dialogue: A study case on South Atlantic Knowledge Production
by Dr Laura Efron

The aim of this thesis is to make a trans-national and trans-Atlantic study of the exchange of radical educational practices and ideas between Latin America and South Africa in the South African context of state of emergency during 1980s.

How did radical Latin American ideas from the 60s and 70s arrive into South Africa? Which ideas found an audience here? Were they read, analysed and re-appropriated by local organisations in the South African context of struggle against apartheid? How were they put in practice? To answer these questions, this thesis analyses the work of the International Labour Research and Information Group (ILRIG) an independent research agency that supported the labour movement in South Africa.
