Inspired by his work, this chapter seeks to empirically explore the third sector's role potential to create substantive uncertainty using Irish data, and to draw some comparisons between the situation in South Africa, as outlined by Habib, and that which pertains in Ireland. Both countries present interesting cases for comparison. South Africa has quite recently come through a major struggle for national identity and democracy, whereas the Republic of Ireland gained independence from Britain in 1922, and has been a nation-state since that time. Both countries, therefore, demonstrate histories of struggles for national identity, albeit from different oppressors and at different historical junctures. The roles played by the respective third sectors in public governance have changed en route and there is also a diversity of public governance roles played by various third sector actors. We now spend some time on those roles looking first at South Africa and then at Ireland.
