The South African government stands accused of having fallen under the sway of the securocrats. Who, or what, are they? Securocrats are officials located in the security establishment - the police, intelligence services or the military - that have the power to influence government policy in their favour. When securocrats come to dominate government decision-making, the democratic life of a country can be threatened. In The Rise of the Securocrats, Professor Duncan throws a spotlight on the hidden corners, murky bureaucracies and power grab that is currently under way.
