South Africa
Fellow Since 1992

This description of Paul Pretorius's work was prepared when Paul Pretorius was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1992.
In the words of Nelson Mandela, black South Africans have experienced law "not as an instrument that afforded the citizen protection but rather as the chief means of our subjection." Recognizing this, Paul Pretorius has effectively sought and developed new forms for resolving disputes that restore public confidence in the legal process, through community dispute resolution centers in black townships.
