Ethiopians in the United Kingdom[edit]

Ethiopians in the United Kingdom are an ethnic group that consist of Ethiopian immigrants to the United Kingdom as well as their descendants

The first wave of Ethiopian immigrants to the UK occurred in 1974, when many were forced from their homes when the Haile Selassie government was overthrown by the military junta, Derg. Many of these were political refugees who left behind high paid and respectable jobs. The second, larger wave of Ethiopians to the UK was in 1991, when Ethiopians of all walks of life claimed asylum in the UK.

Somalis in the United Kingdom[edit]

Somalis in the United Kingdom include British citizens and residents born in or with ancestors from British Somaliland. It is thought that the United Kingdom (UK) is home to the largest Somali community in Europe, with an estimated 98,000 Somali-born immigrants residing in the UK in 2016 according to the Office for National Statistics. The majority of these live in England, with the largest number found in London. Smaller Somali communities exist in Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Liverpool, Leicester, Milton Keynes, Sheffield and Cardiff.

Eritreans in the United Kingdom[edit]

Eritreans in the United Kingdom are an ethnic group that consist of Eritrean immigrants to the United Kingdom as well as their descendants.

Many Eritreans arrive in the United Kingdom as refugees; as of late 2015, Britain receives more asylum-seekers from Eritrea than from any other country.
