This concept paper was prepared for the Club of Rome on the initiative of the Co-Chair, Mamphela Ramphele. Rika Preiser and I from the CST did the heavy lifting based on months of discussion by a group of Africans from different parts of Africa convened by Mamphela in her Co-Chair capacity. It was fun to write this paper with Mamphela, Rika and others to express some of the more recent decolonial literature in a (hopefully) accessible format.
New Wine in New Wine Skins: An Alternative Economic Strategy for South Africa’s Economic Reconstruction

Follows on workshops in March, August and November 2019. We launched this at a webinar last night with Prof Thuli Madonsela, broadcast simultaneously by SABC across all its Africa platforms.

Below are the links to the full paper and the summary for decision makers of the report for the High Level Panel on the Oceans. This High Level Panel consists of 13 Heads of State who are concerned about the future of the oceans. I was co-lead author with South African Tanya Brodie (who is a CST Research Fellow) and American Stanford Professor Mary Ruckelshaus. I learnt so much about the world of ocean governance from this work, and it reinforced my ideas about the commons that I discussed in my latest book The Age of Sustainability.
