The Wits Institute for Social & Economic Research will host this event.

This day and a half event hosted by the Wits Institute for Social & Economic Research (WISER) will examine the ongoing transformations in South African rural societies and the afterlives of the Bantustan system in relation to the changing valencies of chieftaincies, customary law, land tenure, and new modes of subjection and patron-clients relationships.

The extractive and rent-based economy underpinning these transformations will also be analyzed as well as the cultural and symbolic shifts in the social order.
