Communitarism in Britain
MetadataShow full item record
The present work looks at the attitude of Pakistani immigrants toward the United Kingdom with two different views; the first one is that of the first generation of immigrants who went to Great Britain after the Second World War as economic migrants in search of their dream of better life and at the same time with the dream of returning to the home land . The second view is that of the Britsh born Pakistanis who stayed in Britain and see her as their first and may be their only home country. The object of the present research is to analyse the process that the Pakistani Community followed to integrate into the British society, and that strengthened the advantages that the United Kingdom offered when she passed the British Nationality Act which gave more support to the Pakistani Community to integrate into Britain in social, economic and educational spheres. The discussion reveals that the British born Pakistanis had no other choice but integration into British society, thus they found themselves torn between two cultures; that of their ancestors and the one of the host society with a support from the second side offered many advantages such as education.
