Migration and hospitality in Cape Town: A case of Zimbabwean migrants and refugees
MetadataShow full item record
Many studies on migrants and refugees have been undertaken in South Africa, with an emphasis on issues that have a detrimental impact on migrants and refugees in the country, such as xenophobic events, low wages, food poverty, and social and economic isolation. However, this study takes a different approach, examining the scope of what could be happening in terms of solidarity and hospitality for migrants and refugees in religious spaces in urban areas where they reside. This study used a qualitative research approach using data obtained from primary sources gathered by the researcher as well as secondary material from journals, libraries, reports, and book chapters. The case study area was Joe Slovo township in Cape Town. Data were obtained in phases, with the researcher focusing on semi-structured interviews with 10 migrants and refugees.
