The main topic for the dialogue is human rights and the language question - Are Afrikaans - only medium institutions antithetical to the founding values of the Constitution?

Other speakers include General Secretary of the Federation of Unions of South Africa (FEDUSA) Dennis George, human rights lawyer Advocate George Bizoz, Commissioner of the South African Human Rights Commission Responsible for Children’s Rights, Angie Makwetla, Commissioner Professor David Mosoma, Justice Yvonne Mokgoro, as well as Commissioner with the Commission for Gender Equality Mbuyiselo Botha.
