Over the past few years, refugees and migrants have been in the spotlight all over the world. Since the end of Apartheid, millions of migrants and refugees have settled in South Africa – most coming from African and Asian countries. Those who are poor have encountered many problems here including bad treatment and corruption by state officials, xenophobic attacks in townships and discrimination in social life. At the same time our government has promoted an African renaissance and lately under President Cyril Ramaphosa, closer political unity similar to the European Union.

What will this mean for us, should we still have national borders?
