South African Migration to the UK

Charlotte Lemanski co-organises Loughborough symposium

South African Migration to the UK

On 20-21 September, Dr Charlotte Lemanski co-organised a symposium at Loughborough University with Dr Daniel Conway (Loughborough) on South African Migration to the UK: Exploring Dynamics, Identities and Prospects. The meeting was co-sponsored by the Loughborough Centre for the Study of International Governance ( and the UCL Migration Research Unit (

The symposium explored issues relating to the contemporary migration of (predominantly white) South Africans to the UK. Despite large growth in the numbers since 1994, very little academic research has been conducted on the trend or on this demographic group. The symposium therefore served as an initial point of contact among researchers interested in this field, and an opportunity to discuss new ideas and emerging research agendas.

Any researchers interested in South African migration to the UK are invited to contact Charlotte at:
