The embrace of human rights discourse by South Africans in the post-1990 era is surprising, not only given the history of institutionalised oppression under apartheid, but also because the African National Congress has an ambivalent record towards rights.
This lecture will investigate how the Apartheid government and the African National Congress 'discovered' human rights at precisely the same time, in the mid-1980s.
