The Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC), together with market research partner, IPSOS, has looked at anti-immigrant sentiment in South Africa. This survey was conducted with a view to understanding how refugees, asylum-seekers and cross-border migrants are viewed in the country.

The survey is crucial to assisting government and civil society to develop and implement amongst others, effective public communication campaigns and other initiatives, which can reshape attitudes, behaviours and perceptions, towards foreign nationals.
