Abstract:The end of apartheid in South Africa and conflicts elsewhere, in conjunction with shifting modes of production and political reforms, mean that more people than ever are moving for diverse reasons. Building on over ten years of research by the African Centre for Migration and Society (formerly Forced Migration Studies Programme) at the University of Witwatersrand, this volume documents migrations into and within South Africa. It urges a rethinking of migration policies that are more developmental and focused on poverty. The Introduction: Migration to South Africa: regional challenges versus national instruments and interests, is by Aurelia Segatti. The contributions are: Reforming South African immigration policy in the postapartheid period (1990-2010) by Aurelia Segatti; The role of skilled labor by Stephen Ellis and Aurelia Segatti; Mobility and municipalities: local authorities, local impacts, and the challenges of movement by Loren B. Landau, Aurelia Segatti and Jean Pierre Misago; Migration control, documentation, and State transformation by Darshan Vigneswaran; and Migration and health in South Africa: implications for development by Joanna Vearey. There are four appendicies: A, Immigration legislation and policy in South Africa and the Southern African Development Community, 1986-2010; B, How many are they? Data collection issues; C, Migration statistics for southern Africa; and D, Urbanization in Africa, 1950-2010. [ASC Leiden abstract]
