South Africa’s constitution is held up as one of the great models of progressive thought and an inspiration for democracies worldwide. Yet for all the promise of the principles it enshrines, poverty remains deep and persistent and inequality is growing.

Have South Africans have done enough to take ownership of the rights they’ve been given? And have government, the corporate sector and community leaders played their part in upholding these principles and building a truly modern, equitable and prosperous democracy?
