This article gives a brief overview of migrant labor trends between Lesotho and South Africa since 1970 and assesses the factors contributing to these trends. The second section looks to the future with an analysis of several scenarios that could develop in South Africa and how each would affect demand for migrant labor from Lesotho. The authors then evaluate the likely impacts of these various scenarios on Lesotho's domestic economy and offer a discussion of policy initiatives the Lesotho government may pursue in response to the projected scenarios.
