Lecturer, University of the Free State
My research is in the area of land reform, governance and constitutional property law constructs with particular emphasis on improving 'holistic' security of tenure in rural communities that reflect and support the lived realities of people which directly impacts on their social and economic rights. Consequently, I have worked with rural communities consulting on the law pertaining to customary communal land and natural resource matters. I have, therefore, worked with the Department of Agriculture, Rural Development and Land Reform both at provincial and national level to assist rural communities and their customary structures to resolve and navigate complex land rights issues that can arise due to different property rights understandings and legal frameworks. I obtained my LLB and LLM from the University of the Western Cape and LLD from the University of the Free State. I am a lecturer at the University of the Free State, Law Faculty, Private Law department. Prior to academia, I practised in the property law departments of Edward Nathan Sonnenbergs Inc and Webber Wentzel Attorneys in Sandton, Johannesburg.

Anthony Asher is an actuary well known for his interest in ethics in professional life, particularly the social impact of actuarial work. On the one hand this has led to product development, where benefits (and underlying investments) match the particular needs of the bereaved, the disabled and the elderly. On the other hand it has led to questions of professional education and regulation that support the development of judgement and justice. His current research includes investigation of the products and financial advice needed by retirees as their intellectual powers decline, and a virtue theory approach to risk culture and overregulation.

Anthony Pereira graduated from the University of Sussex in 1982 with a BA in Politics and then in 1986 obtained an MA in Government from Harvard University.
His PhD dissertation at Harvard, defended in 1991, involved research on rural labour organisations in Northeast Brazil under two different periods, the late 1950s and early 1960s, and the late 1970s and 1980s. Rural labour organisations played an important role in the politics of both periods, and the dissertation drew on newspaper archives, qualitative interviews, government documents, and a survey of trade union leaders to analyse the changing nature and impact of that role.
After completing his PhD, Pereira taught at the Graduate Faculty of the New School for Social Research in New York City. In 1995, he was a visiting professor at Harvard University, and in 1997-9, a visiting professor at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Boston.
In 1999 he moved to New Orleans, Louisiana, to take a position in the Department of Political Science at Tulane University. During this time he finished his second major research project, a comparative study of the Brazilian military regime’s legal treatment of opponents and dissidents. This study, drawing on court records and interviews, compared the Brazilian military regime (1964-85) to the military regimes in Argentina (1976-83) and Chile (1973-90).
Pereira’s current work concerns citizenship, human rights, public security, and state coercion in Brazil. This includes a study of the performance of a relatively new human rights institution, the police ombudsman, in two different states in Brazil, as well as an analysis of some recent efforts to reform the police. Pereira has been a member of the Executive Committee of the Brazilian Studies Association (BRASA) and is an occasional commentator for BBC Brasil.
