 History of the Kairos Foundation   
 The Kairos Foundation (Stichting Kairos) was founded in 1970 as a support group for the Christian Institute in South Africa, whose general secretary was anti-apartheid activist Dr CF Beyers Naude. Kairos, a Greek word, means 'time is running out'. Until 1990 most of Kairos' attention focussed on violations of human rights in South Africa and mobilisation of support in the Netherlands for sanctions and disinvestment.   
 In the 1970s and 1980s the organisation focused on the causes of apartheid with campaigns aimed at Dutch firms active in the apartheid economy. Other campaigns were aimed at forced removals, detentions, torture in detention, the death sentence, children, conscription and the activities of the security forces.   
 Kairos' work was supported by many of the Dutch churches and there was co-operation from church circles in Southern Africa. Extensive contacts were made with black South African clerics studying in the Netherlands.Kairos mobilised attention on the disempowered and influenced public opinion through campaigns and publications.   
 Through Kairos, many South African organisations channelled information to international organisations and the media. From 1996-1997, Kairos researched the assault and torture of political prisoners in the 1960s and 1970s for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.   
 After 1990 attention shifted to the consequences of apartheid and support for the reconstruction of the country. Youth development was given considerable attention with training, conferences, support and specialist input from experts in various fields to organisations involved in the development of the youth.   
 In 2002, the Kairos Foundation closed its doors. Its resource and research material was then donated to the University of the Witwatersrand.   
 Scope and contents   
 The collection material covers the years 1970 to 2002. Much of the material consists of copies with some exceptions. In co-operation with a large number of non-governmental organisations involved in human rights issues an extensive collection of reports, publications, pamphlets, telegrams and telexes, newsletters and letters was collected.   
 Later material, particularly in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission section was added from Internet news services and the TRC web site. There are a few letters from and to Kairos, but the bulk of the collection is Kairos' research and resource material. Kairos also developed a database and researched reports on detention, torture and deaths in detention for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Kairos research reports and publications are to be found in most of the sections.   
 The material has been placed under the headings and generally in the order in which it was received. The item level description seldom provides detailed lists of all items, but is a sample of the material. There are eleven series. Within these, subject headings facilitate researcher access. The subject headings originate from the Kairos lists and file indexes where provided. The newspaper clippings are extensive. These have been ordered within subject headings and ordered by year.   
 Related material   
 Historical Papers is the custodian of numerous collections, of which a number are related to aspects of the Kairos Collection. A catalogue of these is available.   
 Separated material   
 Kairos has also donated audio-visual tapes of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings. A list of these is available at Historical Papers. A small collection of ephemera consists of campaign buttons, stickers and postcards. A collection of posters contains campaign posters and a series of exhibition posters. Books donated by Kairos have been added to the Africana Library.

 The rights to own land and to live and work at a place of choice were circumscribed by apartheid. Legislation that preceded the period reflected in this material includes the 1913 Natives Land Act. It prescribed areas for land ownership according to race. In many instances black landowners and tenants were forced off their land. The Natives Act of 1923 segregated ownership of urban land, allocating areas on the periphery of towns and cities for black townships or locations. Later the Prevention of Illegal Squatters Act of 1951 laid the basis for the removal of people occupying land illegally.

1.2. Resettlements   
 Resettlement of black communities freed areas zoned for white occupation. There was a renewed drive by the government during the 1970s and 1980s to remove 'surplus' blacks from rural and urban areas. They were incorporated into homelands, resettled in areas distant from white communities. Continued occupation of land rezoned for white occupation brought blacks into conflict with the law.   
 Rural people seeking employment in urban areas settled in informal settlements in and around cities and towns. Some of these communities were forcibly removed to rural areas.   
 The material relates to communities that were under threat of resettlement or those that were resettled. Western Cape resettlements are covered extensively in 1.2.2. Also see   
 The documents include unpublished reports, newsletters and pamphlets from non-governmental organisations that highlight the situation of those forcibly resettled. Publications include case studies and reports from NGOs such as the Association for Rural Advancement and the Black Sash.   
1.2.1. Communities under threat of resettlement   
 These files were compiled by Kairos and contain clippings, affidavits, court documents, and letters to SA Government ministers and overseas organisations. There are also reports from NGOs and churches active in these areas. Newspaper clippings cover the conditions, the protest activities and government responses to resistance. Some of these communities initiated court actions and tried to negotiate with the authorities on decisions taken to resettle them. Bafokeng 1982-1991 (1 file) to in same file Bekkersdal to in same file Bhekumthetho to in same file Boons to in same file Cathcart to in same file Chesterville to in same file Huhudi to in same file Khutsong to in same file Duncan Village to in same file Krugersdorp to in same file Kwelerha to in same file Bloedfontein, Machakeneng and Geweerfontein 1982-1991 (1 file) to in same file

1.4. Rural land   
 The uprooting and relocating of blacks to the rural areas created untenable conditions for communities. The lack of work in the rural areas resulted in the availability of cheap labour and resulted in a migrant labour system. This led to the situation where most rural households were headed by women, dependent on income from absentee male members of the family. Many rural people were dependent on inadequate land resources. This resulted in environmental degradation, with over-grazing and erosion.   
 Non-governmental organisations recorded and highlighted the situation of rural communities. After 1994, many rural communities filed claims for the land from which they had been forcibly removed. The material refers to individual communities that returned to their land and to those that filed land claims.

 With the onset of negotiations towards a democratic South Africa, the demands of those who had been forced off their land for land restitution became a volatile issue. Programmes such as the Return to the Land Campaign and the filing of claims were used to pressure the government to attend to the redistribution of land. Advisory Committee on Land Allocation

 Black resistance to the apartheid government resulted in arrests and trials of many. A small number of white activists supported the anti-apartheid resistance and were the targets of state action. Resistance included campaigns against racist legislation such as the Anti-Pass Law Campaign in 1960. Robert Sobukwe, leader of the Pan-Africanist Congress was arrested that year. The African National Congress formed Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK, the spear of the nation) as the armed wing of the ANC, with Nelson Mandela undergoing military training. The SA Government outlawed black resistance movements and passed legislation in an attempt to curtail the growing resistance.

 Under apartheid, blacks were excluded from national elections The Bantu Homelands Constitution Act in 1971 gave the government the authority to confer independence on territories identified as black homelands and blacks were expected to exercise their voting right in their homeland. In 1984, the Tricameral Parliament was introduced. This resulted in the establishment of the House of Delegates and the House of Representatives for Indian and Coloured South Africans respectively. These bodies had very limited powers.   
 In February 1990, President FW de Klerk announced the unbanning of political parties such as the African National Congress and the Pan Africanist Congress. Parties across the full spectrum of political backgrounds met to draw up a new constitution for the country in the negotiating forum, the Convention for a Democratic South Africa (CODESA). On the 8th of May 1996, this was adopted by the Government which had been elected in the first democratic election in 1994.   
 The material does not refer to all the constitutional changes prior to 1994, but rather concentrates on the development of the 1996 Constitution.

 The apartheid government had a policy of compulsory conscription for white men who were expected to perform military service at regular intervals. Increasingly stringent laws were passed increasing periods of service, broadening the base of eligible white men who could be called up, and providing stringent sentences for those men who objected.   
 Conscripts provided the major part of South African Defence Force (SADF) and South African Police (SAP) personnel. They were seen to support the government's policies with actions against liberation movements, exercises in the black townships and the repression of anti-apartheid activities.   
 The End Conscription Campaign (ECC) was formed in 1983, in protest against compulsory military service. It mobilised support for its campaigns, proposed service alternatives, supported conscientious objectors and provided a forum for the public with information and education on conscription and the alternatives.   
 Conscientious objection was a serious choice as the consequences were severe. The reasons for conscientious objection included political, ethical and religious reasons. Some religious organisations, parent groups and student organisations such as the National Union of South African Students (NUSAS) also engaged in anti-conscription activities.   
 A Kairos campaign against conscription was the 1989 Campaign focussing on the End Conscription Campaign with participation of Alistair Teeling Smith, Rob Watson and Mandy Tailor.

 Apartheid policies had harsh effects on families and children. Homelessness, unemployment and poverty resulted in increasing social problems. Children were particularly vulnerable and the lack of effective social and health services for blacks exacerbated the situation. Black children had little or no protection from the State. Some engaged in resistance activities that gave rise to their detention and maltreatment.   
 Student organisations such as the Congress of South African Students (COSAS), an organisation for black students, and the National Union of South African Students (NUSAS), a white student organisation, were involved in anti-apartheid activities and many of their members were detained, tortured, and tried for serious and petty offences.

 In 1919 the League of Nations gave South Africa a mandate to rule Namibia. This was revoked in 1966 by the General Assembly of the United Nations. South Africa continued to occupy Namibia, which was treated as a province of the Republic rather than a separate country. It was used as a military springboard into Angola and other neighbouring countries. The inhabitants were subject to the apartheid policies applied in South Africa. In 1988, agreement was reached between the UN and the SA government on an independence plan.
