HDRO Conference Room
18 February 2009
Time: 12.30- 2.00 p.m.
With the political liberation that accompanied the end of South Africa’s apartheid era, domestic and regional migration patterns in the country also underwent major changes. The ensuing integration of South Africa with the Southern African Development Community brought a significant increase in intra-regional migration involving both legal and undocumented cross-border movements of people for a variety of purposes. The South Africa country case study provides an historical and analytical overview of migration and displacement vis-à-vis human development in South Africa.
