Securitization in South African immigration policies 1 edition published in in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide Responding to political developments in Europe during the s, the Copenhagen School drew on speech act theory to argue that state leaders represent certain issues, including immigration, as existential threats to society.
Two decades of friendly amendments and vociferous critiques have raised questions about how well the Copenhagen School's core concept of 'societal security' travels outside Europe. To assess the scope of this 'securitization' framework more systematically, we examine South Africa, a democracy that recently liberalized its immigration policies despite ethno-nationalist and racist traditions.
Specifically, we test four claims: 1 that official discourses will target certain foreigners as an existential threat to collective identity; 2 that bureaucracies will consistently institutionalize these discourses; 3 that identity-oriented groups will be crucial to any societal contestation over these discourses; and 4 that successful securitization produces regionalization. These securitization claims hold up well, even though the nature of threats to societal security shift over time.
Keeping in mind that no theory is without weaknesses, we recommend wider integration of the societal security concept into comparative studies of immigration policy, especially in democracies outside Europe.

New Releases. Description An extraordinary outbreak of xenophobic violence in May shocked South Africa, but hostility toward newcomers has a long history. Democratization has channeled such discontent into a non-racial nationalism that specifically targets foreign Africans as a threat to prosperity.
Finding suitable governmental and societal responses requires a better understanding of the complex legacies of segregation that underpin current immigration policies and practices.
Unfortunately, conventional wisdoms of path dependency promote excessive fatalism and ignore how much South Africa is a typical settler state. A century ago, its policy makers shared innovative ideas with Australia and Canada, and these peers, which now openly wrestle with their own racist past, merit renewed attention. As unpalatable as the comparison might be to contemporary advocates of multiculturalism, rethinking restrictions in South Africa can also offer lessons for reconciling competing claims of indigeneity through multiple levels of representation and rights.
