CININI, Samuel Fikiri  e  MKHIZE, Sazelo. Combatting violence against African foreign nationals. A criminological approach towards community safety in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. SA crime q. [online]. 2022, n.71, pp.87-97. ISSN 2413-3108.

South Africa has seen waves of collective xenophobic violence and daily criminal attacks targeting foreign migrants. This study interviewed foreign nationals from African countries living in Durban. Through the lens of strain theory, it explores possible solutions to combat violence against foreign nationals in South Africa. The findings suggest the need to address poverty, socioeconomic integration, community participation, and skills. This will reduce strain and build social cohesion. The government should also revise the Immigration Act to accommodate foreign nationals who legally find themselves within its borders. This revision should take into consideration the suffering of foreigners and reduce any restrictive measures that limit their socioeconomic integration.
