NOT ANOTHER MORAL SUMMIT! PROBLEMS AND POSSIBILITIES FOR MORAL REGENERATION
AbstractSouth Africa’s new democracy has seen a number of high-level public meetings with morality as their central theme. The Moral Summit of 1997 has been followed in 2002 by the launch of the Moral Regeneration Movement. This has been an unusual and fascinating feature of South African public life. This paper seeks to examine the phenomenon - what is it, how did it arise, what is its intention, what is the nature of the moral discussion, and how effective has it been or is it likely to be? Of central importance for this paper is the role of religion in the process, and the changing nature of that role.
