"Living for the sake of living": partnerships between the poor and local government in Johannesburg
Everatt, David; Gotz, Graeme; Jennings, Ross
This paper focuses on two areas: the Johannesburg inner city and Tladi-Moletsane, a suburb of Soweto. According to the authors, the future of partnerships appears gloomy, and they argue that it is difficult to predict the impact that further changes in the inner city may have in making future partnerships more meaningful and viable. Presently, the most successful partnerships seem to be project-based and focused on specific geographic locations, involving government-facilitated opportunities for existing organizations with defined mandates to provide new services to their communities.
