NOT ANOTHER MORAL SUMMIT! PROBLEMS AND POSSIBILITIES FOR MORAL REGENERATION

Neville Richardson

Abstract


South 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.
