Seminar: Why do We Fear and Hate the 'Other'? Understanding Xenophobia in the South African Context

Seminar: Why do We Fear and Hate the 'Other'? Understanding Xenophobia in the South African Context

The 2008 brutal attacks against foreign nationals and the subsequent displacement of thousands of others have raised questions to the extent to which human rights are truly understood and protected in South Africa. Against this backdrop, CSVR hosted a seminar to discuss theoretical understandings of xenophobia and their implications for policy making and implementation, research and advocacy, as well as interventions in the current context. This document is the documentation of that seminar held in Constitution Hill, Johannesburg on the 26th of May 2008.
