The Socio-Economic Rights Institute of South Africa (SERI) is a non-profit organisation providing professional and dedicated socio-economic rights assistance to individuals, communities and social movements in South Africa.
SERI conducts applied research, engages with government, advocates for policy and legal reform, facilitates civil society coordination and mobilisation, conducts popular education and training, and litigates in the public interest (the SERI Law Clinic is registered as a public interest law centre).
Read the SERI 18 Month Annual Review here, which covers the period February 2012 to July 2013.
In November 2013, SERI was presented with The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation's (IJR) 2012 Reconciliation Award, "for keeping the Marikana victims and their families on the national agenda." It was handed over to SERI by IJR's patron, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, at a ceremony held in Cape Town. Read more here.
