Of the five African sub-regions, southern Africa has been the subject of a sustained study of international migration over the last half century. In the heyday of apartheid, South Africa made deliberate efforts to constantly attract and control immigration, benefiting from research undertaken by the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC), as well as from that commissioned by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) on so-called 'black migration' to the country (Bohning 1981). Since 1997, the country has been the focal point of research by the Southern African Migration Project (SAMP), whose study now covers all the neighbouring countries. The HSRC still reigns as the quasi-government arm of research on, among others, migration.
