Examining the nature of labor migration from Malawi broadly and the Mzimba District specifically since the late 19th century, Banda finds that between the 1880s and 1980s Malawians were emigrating either informally or formally. He argues that the decline in mine migrancy directly or indirectly led to the increase in informal labor migration, and that during the post-1990 period, this labor migration became exclusively informal. Before 1990 migrants faced challenges, he says, but after 1990 the challenges were more complicated. Using the human agency theory, he shows that through all this, Malawian labor migrants make rational and informed decisions about whether to emigrate or not.
