dc.description.abstract South Africa has undergone major socio-political change. A key element of this change concerns increased job opportunities for qualified Blacks through the implementation of Affirmative Action policies which advantage Blacks in relation to Whites. Simultaneously, South Africa is experiencing high levels of unemployment. This situation is likely to result in negative evaluations of social change and concern about future job prospects in those experiencing a relative drop in status (Whites), in contrast to those whose group position is improving. This study sought to investigate the effects of these changes on 3 groups of students (African, White and Coloured), each representing a different position within the South African population group hierarchy. In particular, the focus was perceptions of job opportunities in the context of this change. en_ZA
