Inclusive Dualism

Labour-intensive Development, Decent Work, and Surplus Labour in Southern Africa

Nicoli Nattrass and Jeremy Seekings

Critical Frontiers of Theory, Research, and Policy in International Development Studies

  • Challenges the prevailing development wisdom about productivity growth and upgrading
  • Uses South Africa as a case study to explore broader patterns of job destruction, highlighting the importance of ideology, trade-union strategy, and the political-economy of policy-making
  • Places the issue of unemployment centre stage by identifying surplus labour countries
  • Makes the case that labour-intensive growth remains relevant and is essential for inclusive development in surplus labour countries, especially in South and Southern Africa
