Migration scholars release statement on international migration situation in South Africa
DATE: 13 April 2022
Pretoria, Wednesday 13 April 2022 – International migration in South Africa (SA), particularly as it relates to the labour market, is a highly contentious topic. We, the undersigned migration scholars, wish to share relevant information about this important topic. Our work shows that only a small quotient of the SA population are international migrants, and that the overall effect of international immigration on the labour market is not detrimental.
