The Dullah Omar Institute of the University of the Western Cape’s Law Faculty, in partnership with the Oliver & Adelaide Tambo Foundation invites you to the OR Tambo Centenary Lecture
The Constitution: the negotiation processes that led to South Africa’s first great act of decolonisation
This will be the third Lecture given by Albie Sachs, former Professor at UWC and Constitutional Court Judge, in a four-part series sponsored by the Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation to mark the centenary of the birth of Oliver Tambo. The first, given at the University of Pretoria, dealt with Tambo’s Dream, telling the story of the manner in which Tambo laid the foundations in Lusaka for our Constitution. The second, delivered at UCT, concerned the manner in which the Property clause and land redistribution was dealt with during negotiations.
His Lecture at UWC will start with the specific role that workshops put on by the Community Law Centre (now: Dullah Omar Institute) at UWC played in pointing the way to key elements in the Constitution. It will then deal with the six crises over a period of six years that threatened to derail the Constitutionmaking process and how they were resolved.
