  • the development of a database with names, institutional affiliations and contact information;
  • the establishment of a bulk SMS mailing list to keep all players simultaneously informed on plans, progress and development;
  • a rapid scan of the literature on migration trends, the presence of foreign migrants and the history of related social conflict in the Cape Winelands District;
  • identification of policies and practices related to the combating of xenophobic attitudes and monitoring conflict risk which may have been developed in other municipalities;
  • developing a workshop calendar and agreeing dates for workshops within each local municipality;
  • booking venues and sending out invitations;
  • finalising workshop design.

This phase involves:

  • the facilitation of five one-day workshops in each local municipality;
  • the preparation and synthesis of the proceedings of the five workshops;
  • identification of key components for the draft strategy;
  • the establishment of a reference group to consult with as part of the strategy drafting process.

Phase 3: Preparation of a draft strategy

This phase involves:

  • the write-up and circulation of the draft strategy to the reference group;
  • receiving and incorporating comments on earlier drafts of the document;
  • finalisation of a draft document for circulation ahead of the final adoption workshop.
