The Framework for Involvement in the Formulation of Development Projects in the South African Homelands

  • Simon S. Brand


The emphasis in this volume is on motivation and involvement in the formulation of development projects. The conjunction of these two concepts supposedly implies that, if the people affected by development projects are not sufficiently involved in the formulation of such projects, they will not be adequately motivated to give their support to the implementation of the projects.1 It is assumed that other authors will deal in some detail with ways in which the levels of motivation of people to support development projects affecting them, can be raised at the individual project level. This chapter will therefore deal in broad outline with the overall political and economic framework within which the degree of involvement of people in the formulation of economic development projects in South Africa is at present determined, and it will attempt to indicate the directions in which this framework has been evolving with regard to the Black Homelands in particular. Before this can be done, some concepts to be used in this chapter will first have to be clarified.
