Informal Migrant Entrepreneurship and Inclusive Growth in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique

2015, SAMP Migration Policy Series No. 68, Cape Town.

While increasing attention is being paid to the drivers and forms of entrepreneurship in informal economies, much less of this policy and research focus is directed at understanding the links between mobility and informality. This report examines the current state of knowledge about this relationship with particular reference to three countries (Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe) and four cities (Cape Town, Harare, Johannesburg and Maputo), identifying major themes, knowledge gaps, research questions and policy implications.
