It may be true that the lives of most South Africans are increasingly affected by the various forms of social security. And there are not many other academic disciplines. In particular legal disciplines, where so little of the general principles, let alone the intricate debates and details, is actually known. Irrespective of the considerations which may have contributed to this state of affairs over the years, the constitutional embodiment in the Bill of Rights of a right to access to social security (s 27(i)(c) of the Constitution Act 108 of 1996) has now propelled this terrain into the forefront not only of stakeholder debate but also of academic and legal discourse.
