At the time of a similar debate over Apartheid South Africa in the 70s there was a similar furore, and arguments made that the RIBA should not be political. Now that thankfully all people in South Africa have equal rights, there can be no question that when the RIBA severed links with the South African Schools that this assisted towards the wider movement leading to the guaranteeing of democratic rights for all. In the future the current RIBA resolution will be seen in a similar light. People's inalienable rights are equal wherever they happen to be born and the UN Resolutions must be upheld.
