Review: SIHMA/CPLO Seminar 3 Towards a regional integrated migration regime: A future perspective – 3 September 2014
The movement of people is not a new phenomenon to the continent, as Africa has a long history of migration. Cross border migration patterns are influenced by political and economic agreements, which is evident in how colonialism and then apartheid in South Africa shaped cross border labour movement that has continued up to the present. Since the 1994 political changes in South Africa and the progressive globalisation of the economy, there has been a rapid intensification of cross border movements and regional migration between Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries. Despite several regional proposals and discussions a full consensus on a formal regional labour migration framework to govern the free movement of people has not yet been achieved. This seminar provided an overview of the development of the SADC regional labour migration framework and discuss the correlations and implications of such a framework on refugee movements.
