Conference Basel panel

Mervyn Abrahams participated in a colloquium on Migration and Xenophobia in Basel, Switzerland, in early December 2015. This colloquium was jointly hosted by KEESA and the Center for African Studies at Basel University. The colloquium explored migration and xenophobic responses in both South Africa and Switzerland.Mervyn shared on PACSA’s principle of “we all belong here” rooted in a real sense of solidarity as imagined at our 2015 Film and Arts Festival. He argued that we need to expand our political imagination beyond the concept the citizenship and the confines of the nation-state to a social configuration that allows all those who live in a place to really ‘belong there.’ See the discussion, The Gap between Pretense and Reality, on YouTube at
