Centre for the Advancement of Non-racialism and Democracy

The activities of the Centre will be based on the shared understanding of the interdependence of research, advocacy, education, and intervention.

CANRAD will thus seek to:

  • Conduct basic and applied research on non-racialism and democracy;
  • Initiate projects into the critical analysis of the notion of race and the manifestation of racism and its alternatives within the South African context;
  • Strategically facilitate the integration of research and transformative action in advancing non-racialism and democracy;
  • Develop and implement strategies relating to social cohesion at NMMU and the broader South Africa; and
  • Provide support for the advancement of non-racialism and democracy.
