As the year 2013 ends a thinking community is necessarily inclined to ask the question: what is the state of the State in South Africa? This question is inevitable, as the year 2014 marks 20 years since the birth of democracy. An introspective reflection on the democratic path traversed is important to make sense of the strides that the post-apartheid state made in various areas of governance and development, and the challenges it had to contend with. This is important to answer the question: quo vadis demokratia? Or, perhaps, in more specific terms, the question could be: whither goest thou, post-apartheid South Africa? The articles contained in this December 2013 edition of the Journal of Public Administration are a precursor to a big debate on this question that the South African Association of Public Administration and Management (SAAPAM) would be engaging in its 14th Annual Conference, themed The Path Traversed - 20 Years of Democracy in South Africa, scheduled to take place on 26-28 March 2014 in the Limpopo Province [Park Hotel, Mokopane].
