The concept of livelihoods is a widely researched area in migration studies. For the most part migration studies have focused on explaining the complexities of securing a livelihood among migrant communities of less advantaged backgrounds. This book explores the livelihoods of foreign African academics at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. It highlights the different reasons surrounding African professional migrancy into South Africa.It critically examines how foreign African academics are engaging with the structures provided by the university and the South African government in pursuit of different forms of scholarship that are intended to maximise their professional potentials. Among other issues, the book reveals the commitment of these foreigners in collaborating with structures that seek to promote African scholarship whose overall agenda is emphasised in the need to redress the imbalances that had characterised the South African Past. From a social perspective, the book discusses how gendered constructs and roles of African men and women professionals have been modified by their new transnational experiences.
