In 2010 Isandla Institute celebrated its 10th Anniversary, which presents an important moment to reflect on an organisation's sustained presence, impact and resilience, the organisation experienced many changes. Reflecting on 10 years of development practice allows one to see both continuity and change. It is particularly interesting to take note of the fact that much of what Isandla Institute does today has its roots in earlier work. Our continued interests in local government as a key development actor, in a vibrant, multi-layered and wellnetworked civil society, in dialogue, learning exchange and robust engagement, in innovative responses to tackle exclusion, inequality, poverty and marginalisation are key examples in this respect.
This report reflects further on these themes.
