I am a doctoral researcher investigating the mobilisations of South Asian diaspora in the UK. My work aims to explain why and how migrants (and their descendents) unite through civil society, media, activtist and development organisations or collectives. In doing so, I also address the conditions where unification is fragmented or strained. And lastly, I look to the impacts of diaspora mobilisations, at both the transnational and local levels.
