Abstract:The demise of formal apartheid has created new and as yet only partially understood opportunities for migration to South Africa. This special issue examines the qualitative nature of the new South African migratory mosaic, addressing questions such as: Who are the new international migrants and immigrants in South Africa? What are the conditions shaping their migratory patterns? What is the nature of their relations with South Africans and their home countries? The present introduction to the collection discusses three major themes: the changing character of cross-border migration to South Africa; the value of the conceptual apparatus of transnationalism to describe and research changing forms of cross-border migration to South Africa; and the spatial configuration and emergence of new migrant space in the country.
