Nelson Mandela was one of the most respected political leaders the world has seen for a reason: he helped take South Africa through a remarkable period encompassing the end of apartheid and the first democratic election. How is the country moving ahead in the post-Mandela era? What is his legacy for reconciliation, democracy, the rule of law through a strong constitution? And what will become of the ANC now that its great generation is passing from the stage?

In this Ground Truth Briefing, Africa experts come together to discuss Mandela's life and legacy.

The Wilson Center series taps into the resources of former Center Scholars and Fellows who are on the ground in hot spots around the globe and can share their unique viewpoints. This on the record briefing was by invitation only.
