Xenophobia

Jonathan Crush of the South African Migration Project (SAMP) wrote an excellent article in July 2008 on "South Africa is struggling to define a post-apartheid migration policy that is responsive to its changing role in Africa, the relationship between migration and development, and the country's rampant xenophobia, seen most graphically in May 2008". I suggest that anyone interested in migration issues around the world should subscribe to the newsletter produced by Migration Policy Institute (MPI). Better yet, support their work with a donation. Understanding how different countries manage to deal/not deal with migration problems can only help people develop informed opinions about migration/immigration issues facing us.
