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.
We do research, advocacy and movement building to contribute to the renewal and potency of popular movements for ecofeminist and socially just alternatives. Key areas of focus include:
- Supporting the building of vibrant, autonomous and inclusive movements capable fighting for a Just Transition;
- Working with social and trade union partners to resist and build alternatives to neoliberal and extractivist policies;
- Contributing to social and eco-feminist alternatives for a Just Transition;
Over the years AIDC has played a leading role in various civil society responses to ongoing inequality including facilitating the launch and building of the South African Jubilee 2000 debt cancellation campaign, and the Right to Work Campaign. In recent years AIDC co-ordinated the Million Climate Jobs Campaign, hosted the Southern African People’s Tribunal on Transnational Corporations under the banner of the Dismantle Corporate Power Campaign, which birthed the Right to Say No Campaign. AIDC has established itself as a leading source of research and information on Illicit Financial Flows, Energy Democracy, themes of poverty, trade, and globalisation as well as playing a central role in various regional and international networks and forums
Supporting Popular Resistance and Alternatives for a Just Transition (2022-2024)
From 2022 to 2024, AIDC will work with popular movements of civil society to develop, in more concrete terms what such a Just Transition entails.
