Modern Migrations
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the life histories of individual Gujarati Indians and their social networks to understand how migration happens and what migration flows look like. It also discusses the role of social ties in forming the selectivity of migration flows, the economic consequences of these flows, and how destination affects the lives of Gujarati immigrants. It looks at the migration of Gujaratis to East Africa, London, and New York as well as the very first occupations they held in those regions. It illustrates how migrant networks connect local labor markets transnationally, thus giving rise to the conditions for migration and selecting particular migrants to gain employment in particular industries.

Keywords:   Gujarati Indians, social networks, life histories, migration, immigrants, occupations, social ties, East Africa, London, New York
