Abstract

The chapter contextualizes and describes legislated, socio-political and organizational practices in managing diversity in three countries, namely India, Pakistan, and South Africa. The three countries serve as examples of emerging countries that have historical linkages with each other. Examples of how organizations within each country are responding to macro-level legislative practices are provided, highlighting the tensions and inconsistencies in applying legislation and its intent whilst dealing with country-specific realities. Diversity contrasts, such as integrating minorities in India and Pakistan, versus the integration of the majority in South Africa, are discussed, and attention is drawn to the emphasis placed on diversity categories such as gender and race. The chapter concludes with an overview of the differences in diversity management practices in the three countries.
