Immigrants that have settled in Britain have often
done so due to the political and religious oppression they faced at home or
because of the economic opportunities that Britain seemed to represent.
Immigrants have brought with them their own faiths and cultures that have
influenced British society.SJ(3
influence of immigration on British culture is an extremely hot topic at a time
when British society is actively discussing the success or failure of
multi-culturalism. Part of British
society believes that to have a broad-based society in which all religions,
races and creeds are accepted as equals is what makes Britain great. SJ(4 http://www.pitlanemagazine.com/ethnicity-and-gender/affect-of-immigration-on-british-culture.html
Migration is a process of social change where
an individual, alone or accompanied by others, because of one or more reasons
of economic betterment, political upheaval, education or other purposes, leaves
one geographical area for prolonged stay or permanent settlement in another
this criterion, I assess these three questions I
raised in this essay and they areSJ(5 :
Do Somalis have
the same culture as the Britons?How do the British people see the Somali culture?Is Somali culture endangering their language, culture,
are three crucial questions at the heart of our concerns.SJ(6
Before we answer them, people ask: what is the
British culture? SJ(7
Britain is multi-cultural and immigrants and
asylum seekers are more than welcome as long as they embrace the British
culture. Many people, however, fail to explain what British culture is. Is it
freedom of speech, freedom of movement, democracy, tolerance, respect or politeness?SJ(8
We find that Somali culture and British
culture have certain things in common when it comes to greeting, politeness and

when people migrate from
one nation or culture to another they carry their knowledge and expressions of
distress with them. In this paper, various hypotheses explaining the impact of
Somali immigration act of migration on British culture are described. The study
explores how Somali immigrants interact with the British natives and how they
speared their culture.
The earliest Somali
immigrants in the UK were lascars and merchants who arrived in the 19th
century. A second small group of seamen came during the Second World War with
the Royal Navy, and stayed in search of employment. During the 1980s and 1990s,
the civil war in Somalia led to many Somali immigrants, comprising most of the
current Somali population in the UK. https://books.google.se/books?id=qQjTDgAAQBAJ=frontcover=somali+muslim+british+striving=sv=X=y#v=onepage=somali%20muslim%20british%20striving=false 2017-10-16 12:02
It is thought that the United Kingdom (UK) is home to
the largest Somali community in Europe, with an estimated 114,000 Somali-born
immigrants residing in the UK in 2014 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, Sheffield and Cardiff. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statistics_and_Registration_Service_Act_2007
Immigration results in specific
challenges to reduce or remove differences between newcomers and natives. This
is what is meant by immigrant integration. The impacts of immigration have been
felt in many areas such as from jobs, education and housing through to
language, diet and the arts. SJ(9 https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/fee4/8ee5dd6fcf1105c7a2d904beb071dc3013dd.pdf
must be emphasized that migration is not only a trans-national process but can
also be rural–urban. Any such process involves not only leaving social networks
behind (which may or may not be well established) but also includes
experiencing at first a sense of loss, dislocation, alienation and isolation,
which will lead to processes of acculturation. https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/web-talk-radio/act-taking-hurt-to-hope-joanne-dahl/e/33299420
Immigrants to Britain come from all
over the world, some are from countries who have a lot in common with Britain
and they find it easier to fit into the British culture. And, there are many
cultures that are very different from the British culture. For example, people
who come from south Africa America and Australia have common language with
British and people from Sweden and Norway they have basic western culture in
common with Britain while. people from Asian countries might find difficult
because they have very little commonalities. Britain has a rich culture of
architecture, literature, theatre, cinema and history. Now, Britain finds
itself having to deal with a massive immigration dilemma and many angry Britons
who are opposing the immigration policy and the constant influx of foreigners
to the country. Therefore, British people
are becoming interested in Somali culture when it comes to hospitality, bravery
and eloquence. https://soapboxie.com/world-politics/Is-The-British-Culture-Endangered-by-Immigration2017-09-11 14.05SJ(10 SJ(11
