The various routes of migration-resources, networks, formal and less formal agents and the capacity of individuals undertaking the migration journey-as well as their motivation for migrating from Ethiopia to South Africa are not well understood. Yet, this inquiry couldoffer important insights into the base factors of migration within this ethnic entrepreneurial community. This study, undertaken under the auspices of the Migrating Out of Poverty Research Consortium(MOOP)1at the African Centre for Migration & Society (ACMS) explored the migration industry that attends the migration of Ethiopians to South Africa. The study explored these issues through qualitative research that included long form interviews with 40 Ethiopian migrant entrepreneurs in Johannesburg and Durban. This was supplemented with desktop research and key informant interviews.
