Migrant Informal Sector Businesses

June 8, 2017 | By | Reply More

Our recent Migration Policy Papers provide interesting information and analysis from research studies into migrant-owned informal sector enterprises. They are available for download.

Our book, Mean Streets: Migration, Xenophobia and Informality in South Africa, edited by Jonathan Crush, Abel Chikanda, Caroline Skinner, powerfully demonstrates that some of the most resourceful entrepreneurs in the South African informal economy are migrants and refugees. Yet far from being lauded, they take their life into their hands when they trade on South Africa’s “mean streets”.

And look out for our next publication coming out soon! Living With Xenophobia: Zimbabwean Informal Enterprise in South Africa by Jonathan Crush, Godfrey Tawodzera, Abel Chikanda and Daniel Tevera.
