Understanding Current Xenophobic Attacks and How South Africa Can Move Forward

Understanding Current Xenophobic Attacks and How South Africa Can Move Forward

On the 19th of May 2008 the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) convened a meeting of all Chapter 9 Institutions as well as NGO's to discuss Civil Societies response to the xenophobic violence. During this meeting the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR) was mandated by the SAHRC to coordinate the humanitarian response by CSO to the displaced victims. This is a task which we took seriously. As part of the task we were able to gather regular detailed information from all the sites in Johannesburg and Ekurhuleni over the crisis period. Our reports included detailed information on each site and have been used to address gaps that may have been identified.
