How have racist ideas and exclusionary frameworks persisted in modern South African society? This event will especially consider the case of migration from border states.

This event is part of LSE IDEAS’ Racism and International Politics series and seeks to investigate the xenophobia and discrimination experienced by diaspora in South Africa. Professor Chris Nshimbi will be speaking on this issue, and his own lived experiences, with Dr Nedson Pophiwa, Dr Kudakwashe Vanyoro, and Dr Sue Onslow all acting as co-discussants.

Christopher Changwe Nshimbi is Director of the Centre for the Study of Governance Innovation (GovInn) and Senior Lecturer in the Department of Political Sciences, University of Pretoria. He researches migration, borders, regional integration, the informal economy and water governance.

Sue Onslow is a Senior Research Fellow at The Institute of Commonwealth Studies, and King's College London.

Nedson Pophiwa is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Learning on Evaluation and Results (CLEAR) University of The Witwatersrand.

Kudakwashe Vanyoro is a Research Fellow at The African Centre for Migration & Society.

Chris Alden is Director of LSE IDEAS and Professor of International Relations at The London School of Economics and Political Science.
