  • TITLE: Xenophobia in Southern Africa: A Pan-Africanist Perspective for Modern Times

    AUTHORS: Sechaba Khoapa

    KEYWORDS: Poverty and Inequality, Economics, Policy Development, South Africa, Pan-Africanism, Social Identity Theory

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Access Library Journal, Vol.3 No.3, March 23, 2016

    ABSTRACT: Xenophobia is historically and in modern times a very systemic political, social and economic manifestation of imperialism. Although successful gains have been achieved, a Pan-Africanist effort to work collectively faces several challenges in the Southern African region. This chapter attempts to pry apart the shell of xenophobia in Southern Africa by examining 1) the Pan-Africanist role of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), 2) understanding the economic, social, and political conditions rooted in xenophobia among SADC countries, 3) xenophobia in South Africa (2008 and 2015), and 4) xenophobia and its implications for future efforts of Pan-Africanism. It is imperative to pinpoint the root agendas and not be consumed by the outward expressions of xenophobia as depicted by media and propaganda. Pan-Africanism is in higher need in modern times than ever before in the past. The challenges seem enormous due to concerns created by modernization and the increasing poverty gaps, clouding the efforts of Pan-Africanism. It’s contended that with appropriate understanding and application, the challenges will not out-weigh the gains.
