South African Research Chair in Development Education

The DST/NRF South African Research Chair in Development Education is a national chair funded by the Department of Science and Technology, managed by the National Research Foundation and hosted by Unisa.

All the focal areas informing the DST/NRF South African Research Chair in Development Education’s research aim at Restorative Action. Restorative Action uses Indigenous Knowledge Systems as an approach to opening up the gridlock in epistemology between the West and the “Others” going forward. For its part, Restorative Justice consolidates Transdisciplinarity as an approach to discourse, practice and thought. The Chair’s focal areas thus aim at fostering methodologies for systems transformation.
