Diaspora Youth and Ancestral Homeland: British Pakistani/ Kashmiri Youth visiting Kin in Pakistan and Kashmir

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book explores the relationships of thirty young people with their ancestral homeland, of Pakistan or Kashmir, and with British urban life. It does so using narratives from young people about their journeys from Birmingham in Britain to visit kin in villages in rural Pakistan and Kashmir.
Its particular usefulness is the critique that its empirical data raises of ‘conventional wisdom’ of some governments, media, academic theorists and public bodies about Muslim Minorities.
