Increased labour demands in Europe following the Second World War led to a migration of workers from the Indian subcontinent to many parts of Europe. A further wave of migration occurred in the 1960s and 1970s because of political turmoil in East Africa. More recently, technological progress and the need for skilled labour has resulted in migration to different parts of the world, including the USA and Canada. The term ‘South Asian’ broadly refers to people of Indian, Pakistani, and Bangladeshi origin, but those from Sri Lanka and Nepal are commonly also included. Although there is considerable heterogeneity between these subgroups, they share many sociocultural factors.
