Black Economic Empowerment: Commentary, Legislation and Charters seeks to make the relevant legislation of black economic empowerment accessible to an audience that extends far beyond the legal profession. The guide provides a useful commentary on the legislative framework regulating BEE, places legislation in its broader historical and social context, and outlines the government’s multi-faceted approach to the issue. The work is continuously updated to include new legislation and charters and codes of practice as these are developed, allowing readers to keep abreast of the unfolding empowerment framework. It provides a clear legal analysis of controversial issues.
