Abstract: While xenophobic sentiment continues to be strongly entrenched in developed countries, it is increasingly prevalent in developing countries as well. This paper examines the rise of xenophobic sentiment in India and South Africa, and action ranging from politicization, to neglect, denial and silence. The ability of the State to formulate and implement remedial policies is compromised by its own complicity in regard to xenophobia. The paper examines manifestations of popular and state sanctioned hostility to migrants, the utility of current theories of xenophobia and racism for explaining the causes of xenophobia in the South, and human development consequences of the growth of xenophobia.
