The public interest organization, Institute for Democracy in South Africa (Idasa), was founded by Frederick van Zyl Slabbert and Alex Boraine in 1986. Their goal was to help find "an alternative to the politics of repression" and over time they came to work more generally on promoting sustainable democracy based on "active citizenship, democratic institutions, and social justice." Visitors can read book reviews, articles, monitoring reports, newsletters, and fact sheets as well as sign up to receive their newsletters which are released every month. It's a well-thought out site, and for persons with an interest in development issues, political science, and related fields, it's a site they will want to return to several times.
