Alternative Information Development Centre (AIDC)

AIDC was formed in 1996 in response to the democratic transition in South Africa and the new opportunities and challenges it brought those seeking greater social justice within the democracy. AIDC is behind the launch of the Right to Work Campaign and has established itself as a leading source of research and information on poverty, trade and globalization. AIDC is also the publisher of Amandla magazine, a bi-monthly magazine that provides coverage of current political, economic, social processes, events and struggles from a radical perspective. AIDC presents proposals for alternative strategies and perspectives that can deepen the process of reconstruction, democracy and social development in South Africa and on the continent.
