and other information. 'CHANGING THE SOUL OF THE NATION'? SOUTH AFRICA'S NATIONAL CRIME PREVENTION STRATEGY

By Anne-marie Singh

Abstract

South Africa's National Crime Prevention Strategy (NCPS) has attracted surprisingly little academic interest. Where this occurs, attention centres narrowly on issues of implementation and operationalisation. This paper urges greater critical engagement with the policy driving crime prevention programmes. It suggests that the NCPS reflects (and effects) a change in the way crime is governed. A descriptive analysis of the objects, concepts and subjects of this new discourse is offered. The ambivalences, tensions and contradictions evident within the NCPS are mapped out. Some implications for the future of crime prevention in South Africa are discussed in the conclusion
