Migrants Domain

The other domain which provides a point of entry into interrogating urban inclusion and well-being is the minority cluster which migrants represent. But of greater significance is the vulnerability of immigrants – especially black Africans from other African countries who suffer from xenophobic attacks at the hands of locals. The instability of urban spaces to migrants largely arising out of anti-foreigner sentiments deepens marginalisation and social exclusion among migrants. However, different urban spaces have different migration profiles, which require locally responsive and appropriate mechanisms to address this problem. Intervention measures spelt out through spatial policy documents fail to articulate demographic issues of this nature more effectively. Hence this research intends to interrogate this issue within the context of creating an inclusive city where the well-being of migrants is addressed.
