This is SERI's third and final newsletter of 2019. In it, we present a few highlights from our work since September 2019. SERI has undertaken over 500 litigious matters on behalf of hundreds of thousands of people and provided non-litigious support to many more.
In this period, we furthered our research and advocacy work, and participated in a number of exciting civil society and government engagements. Among these, we have given several presentations including on urban land reform; upgrading of informal settlements; the provision of sanitation services in dense informal settlements, and on the legal rights of waste-pickers.
We have also hosted and participated in a range of workshops including on the Right to Work; on the use of visual media, posters and slogans to promote awareness of housing and gender rights in inner city Johannesburg, and facilitated and took part in the 2019 Public Interest Law Gathering.
