Second generation Arabs in London

Ramy Ali, Filippo Osella and Katy Gardner, University of Sussex

[Project number 30102]

This project on 'second generation' and British born Arabs living in London asks how young people of Arab descent practise and understand Arab culture in contemporary London. The research also investigates the place of young people of Arab origin in British Multiculturalism, the wider Arab Diaspora and how/if politics in the Middle East have had an impact on the lives of young people. The project also draws upon historical data to help understand the different phases of migration and community development, with particular interest in the demographic weight of British born Arabs in relation to migrants from the Arab world.
