The FW de Klerk Foundation is pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Phephelaphi Dube to succeed Adv Johan Kruger as the Director of the Centre for Constitutional Rights (CFCR), with effect from 1 May 2016.
Ms Dube joined the Foundation in 2014 as the Legal Officer in the Centre for Constitutional Rights where she soon distinguished herself, carving out a niche as a valuable member of the team.
Ms Dube holds the LL.M degree from the University of Stellenbosch, as well as the LL.B degree from the University of Fort Hare, in addition to a Diploma in European Studies from the University of Vienna in Austria. She completed her articles at the Rhodes University Legal Aid Clinic in 2005 and gained international experience as a clerk for the Vice President of the International Criminal Court. Ms Dube has previously held research positions at the University of Stellenbosch's South African Research Chair in Property Law and at the Ludwig Boltzman Institute for Human Rights at the University of Vienna.
Ms Dube is committed to promoting the South African Constitution and looks forward to continuing the work of her predecessors at the CFCR, Adv Paul Hoffman SC, Adv Nikki de Havilland and Adv Johan Kruger in cementing constitutional values in the nation.
