Mapping the Rwandan Diaspora in the United Kingdom

While there is a growing body of research literature on Rwanda and its diaspora, there are no extant studies focusing specifically on Rwandans in the United Kingdom. This is in large part attributable to the fact that the Rwandan community in the United Kingdom is a relatively small one, concentrated across three major urban areas: London, the Midlands and Manchester and the North, with smaller groups in Scotland and in the rest of England and Wales. It is difficult to accurately estimate the number of Rwandans in the United Kingdom, but an estimated figure of 10,000–15,000 is likely, drawing on existing data sources (see section 2). Rwandans in the United Kingdom mostly arrived between 1994 and 2000, with smaller numbers arriving in the period from 2000 to 2018.
