The FW de Klerk Foundation – in partnership with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation – invites you to attend our Annual Conference. Our theme for 2019 is: “Addressing Inequality”.
The FW de Klerk Foundation annually hosts a conference on 2 February in Cape Town (this year’s event falls on Friday, 1 February), to coincide with the announcement in Parliament in 1990 of the release of Nelson Mandela and other prisoners and the unbanning of several organisations. Each year the conference tackles a topical theme, with input from a diverse range of influential speakers. Previous speakers include former President Kgalema Motlanthe, Justice Albie Sachs, Dr Mathews Phosa, Ms Rhoda Kadalie, Prof Frans Viljoen, Mr Sipho Pityana, Adv Jeremy Gauntlett, Mr Johann Rupert and former President FW de Klerk.
