The Golden Key Wits Chapter will host this Thinkers Symposium.

The symposium will focus on functionality of South Africa’s democracy. The country has in the last five years become increasingly knowledgeable on the various inner workings of democratic institutions such as parliament, the Office of the Public Protector and the Constitutional Court that has lifted the profile of these institutions and impacted the political landscape. The symposium will serve as a platform for dialogue on whether these institutions are doing enough to serve ordinary citizens. The Thinkers Symposium also seeks to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the South African democracy and hopes to encourage participants to further engage in conversations around democracy beyond the symposium.
