The Establishment of the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain and its influence on the Ukrainian Diaspora in Scotland

 

Following WW2, Europe was awash with political refugees and displaced persons. Britain began to accept many of these as European Voluntary Workers.Peter Kormylo’s research sheds light on an understudied community which settled in Scotland immediately post war. It considers the Ukrainian diaspora within a template of Scotland as an immigrant -receiving country.
