SACSIS - the South African Civil Society Information Service - is a platform for policy dialogue that has been established as a news agency to channel social justice news and analysis about policy dialogue in South Africa to the media.
SACSIS seeks to influence media reporting and consequently public policy discourse to promote the idea of the entitlement of the poor, to a higher standard of living and better quality of life.
SACSIS is governed by a board of trustees drawn from civil society. Our trustees include activists and practitioners working in academia and NGOs.
SACSIS embraces a rights based approach to development, which views poverty as a denial of human rights.
SACSIS releases between two and five articles per week. Our emphasis is on quality as opposed to quantity.
