Second Carnegie Inquiry into Poverty and Development in Southern Africa, 1984

 

The Second Carnegie Inquiry into Poverty and Development in Southern Africa was directed by Francis Wilson. 310 papers were presented at the conference held in April 1984 to 450 participants. Some 58 research associates and young interns from previously disadvantaged backgrounds produced 60 of these papers. The conference was accompanied by a film festival depicting work being done around the world in the struggle against poverty where 16 international and 16 South African videos and films were viewed. A photographic exhibition by a collective of South African photographers led by Omar Badsha was also mounted and later toured Europe and America. 21 post-conference papers were also later produced. The papers can be accessed below.
