Abstract

This book focuses on the migration history, demography, and socio-economic position of the Somali community in Britain, the largest of the Somali diaspora communities outside the African subcontinent. It addresses a number of specific themes, including the statistical invisibility of ethnic Somalis in official data collection and the decennial census; the rapidly growing size of the Somali migrant community in Britain, experiencing a growth rate of over 160 per cent in a decade; and, its complex migration history, including significant flows of asylum-seekers and refugees and onward migration from European Union countries.
