Nelson Mandela Foundation


Empowering Communities Through Dialogue, the final booklet covering the work of the Community Conversations series of dialogues, has been published.

The Community Conversations have been a partnership between the Foundation and the German federal government’s German Society for International Co-operation (GIZ), and were launched in 2008 as a response to the outbreak of xenophobic violence in South Africa.
