The book Service Learning in South Africa is designed to include a theoretical component and a practical perspective. The book adopts a social justice framework and the theoretical component addresses why students do service learning, includes reflection, and discuss issues of power, such as the positioning between students and site managers.

Case studies demonstrate how service learning has been implemented at various universities, providing guidelines on what

institutions, lecturers and students have learnt from the experience. There is synergy between the theory of service learning and practical case studies that complement the theory by drawing out general principles related to service learnin g.
