Abstract: Migration from developing 10 developed countries has been accompanied by growing resentment of immigrants and refugees. While xenophobic sentiment continues to he strongly entrenched in developed countries, it is increasingly prevalent in developing countries as well. This paper examines the: rise of xenophobic sentiment and action in India and South Africa. The response of the state 10 xenophobic violence in each jurisdiction is considered. In each case, the ability of the Slate to formulate and implement remedial policies is compromised by its own complicity or denialism in regard to xenophobia. Without a coordinated international, regional and national recognition of the magnitude of the problem and the formulation of a coherent and coordinated response (including much more research on the actual rather than imagined impacts of migration), xenophobia will continue to undermine the rights of migrants and bedevil efforts to maximize' the development potential of migration.
