    "Ratting on Rampant Crime in South Africa"

    A Foreign Experience: Violence, Crime and Xenophobia during South Africa's transition

    by Bronwyn Harris

    Violence and Transition Series, Vol. 5, August 2001.

    Bronwyn Harris is a Researcher at the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation.

    Executive Summary

    This report examines the involvement of foreigners in violence during South Africa's period of transition. It grapples with the legal, political and social implications of foreigners in a changing social order. In so doing, the report examines a plethora of complex issues, including: the foreign experience of crime and violence in a context of increasing xenophobia; post-apartheid discourses about immigrants and refugees; and the transmigration of violence across national borders. The major findings of this report stem from interviews and focus groups conducted with more than 100 foreign respondents. These findings are supplemented and informed by an extensive literature review and secondary-data analysis.
