Frederik Van Zyl Slabbert (1940 – 2010) was a South African political analyst, businessman and politician. He was the leader of the official opposition, the Progressive Federal Party (PFP), in the South African House of Assembly from 1979 to 1986. Slabbert played a leading role in initiating dialgoue between white South Africans and the African National Congress (ANC). His efforts led to the Dakar conference of 1987. This conference represented the first step towards dismantling apartheid and informed subsequent negotiations which changed the course of South Africa's history.
