War resistance in apartheid South Africa

Daniel Conway

  • Examines the role of the ECC in helping end apartheid and allowing white South Africans to participate in the liberation struggle
  • Contributes to, develops and refines analysis of masculinities and militarisation and the contestation of militarisation (by conscientious objection, war resistance and peace activism) as a gendered political act
  • Relates to the study of militarisation and war resistance/peace activism across context and history, and is relevant to those interested in contemporary Israel, Turkey and all societies where conscription and militarisation is present
