Jane Duncan examines the extent to which government decision-making in South Africa is dominated by a group of securocrats in the police, intelligence services and the military. She also evaluates the effect of journalism on the activities of this group of securocrats, and the impact of the security cluster on activism and protest action.

Jane Duncan is Professor in the Department of Journalism, Film and Television at the University of Johannesburg.
