9780718512835: Immigrants Settling in the City: Ugandan Asians in Leicester

This book surveys the expulsion of Asians from Uganda in 1972 and their subsequent reception and resettlement, with particular reference to the city of Leicester. Initially, Leicester gained the reputation of being particularly unwelcoming to the immigrants, because of its official policy of placing discouraging notices in the Ugandan press. The study shows that Leicester was not alone in showing this initial response, and that these negative attitudes were subsequently balanced by more positive measures in both statutory and voluntary sectors. The response of various Asian organizations is described in detail and three aspects of the resettlement are discussed in depth: the response of the education service, housing, and the part that Ugandan Asian women played in recreating family stability after their forced migration.
