integration of first-generation immigrants

Cape Town, South Africa: A Case Report of Refugees in Towns

The Cape Town report focuses on the educational integration of first-generation immigrants ages 15-20 in four different schools of Cape Town, and their difficulties with permits, language and cultural barriers, and views of prejudice toward them. The author is himself a migrant to Cape Town from Zimbabwe who has undergone the long process of integration, and presents his own experiences and social network in the city. The report concludes with some recommendations to improve the integration of migrant children in the schools of Cape Town.
