Sharlene Swartz, in her recent book Another Country. Everyday Social Restitution (BestRed 2016) has called for a renewed conversation in South Africa about restitution in both its legal and social forms. In the book she relates Black South Africans’ experiences of dehumanising racism alongside White South African’s shame for the past and anxiety for the future. In this context, she introduces the concept of ‘social restitution’ - understood as the actions and attitudes that everyday people can undertake in dialogue with each other to address past injustice, and offers four new ideas about restitution based on reflection with ordinary South Africans. These include how injustice damages all our humanity; how current descriptors of role players in injustice no longer serves transgenerational experiences; the role of dialogue and practical action in restitution; and that there is something for everyone to do – individuals and communities, alongside government and institutional efforts, when it comes to restitution.

Sharlene Swartz is a Research Director at the Human Sciences Research Council in South Africa and an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Cape Town. She completed her undergraduate studies in South Africa, and her graduate studies at Harvard and Cambridge. Her expertise centres on youth in adverse contexts, the effects of race on educational outcomes, and emancipatory qualitative research methods. Before embarking on an academic career Sharlene was a youth worker. She is the current chair of the Restitution Foundation in South Africa. Her other books include: Ikasi: The moral ecology of South Africa’s township youth (2009); Teenage Tata: Voices of young fathers in South Africa (2009); and Youth Citizenship and the Politics of Belonging (2013).
