Key Points:

  • On 13 November 2007 CDE hosted a workshop on the migration of Zimbabweans to South Africa.
  • CDE took this initiative because it had become clear from media reports that increased migration flows from Zimbabwe were exacerbating and dramatising already existing inadequacies of regional migration management.
  • By staging the workshop, and distributing this publication based on its proceedings, CDE hopes to broaden and inform the policy debate not only on the short-term pressures of crisis-driven movement of people out of Zimbabwe, but on the wider and longer-term issues of immigration policy in South Africa.
