Mazibuko Kanyiso Jara is a 2012 Social Entrepreneurs-in-Residence at Stanford University candidate, and a research associate at UCT Law’s Race and Gender Research Unit. She examines the future of underdeveloped rural areas in the former homelands, which are increasingly shaped by various conflicts and contradictions: between the constitution and the official version of customary law, between custom and rights, between traditional councils and municipalities, between rural dwellers and tribal authorities, between rural women and patriarchal tribal institutions, and between imposed tribal institutions and local experiments with community-based systems.
