India Migration Report 2019 examines the issues of identity related to integration in European societies. It examines the multifarious nature of social, economic and political engagements of the Indian diaspora with their host societies in Europe.

This volume:

  • assesses the historical trends in migration to Europe, mobility paths and transnational networks of skilled Indian migrants, as well as recent tendencies in movements of migrants;
  • explores the roles of Indian migrants in transforming host societies with their skills and capabilities;
  • highlights their contribution towards the development of their homeland through knowledge transfer, philanthropy, capital flows, remittances and investment;
  • takes stock of the impact of recent events, especially Brexit and anti-immigrant positioning of some political parties;
  • uses mixed research methods including ethnography, key informant interviews and in-depth case studies.

The volume will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of development studies, economics, demography, sociology and social anthropology, and migration and diaspora studies.
