(p.141) Conclusion
The Indian Caribbean

Lomarsh Roopnarine

University Press of Mississippi

This concluding chapter summarizes the findings of this book's study, which is divided into four distinct but interconnected points. First, of all Indian migrations, the movement from India to the Caribbean has received the most attention, mainly from a historical perspective. Second, the modern Caribbean migration after the 1930s to within the Caribbean, Europe, and North America was inspired by the need for religious cultural connection, economic opportunities, and proximity of Indian communities in the Southern Caribbean as well as by political turbulence, ethnic tensions in the Caribbean, and various immigration policies. Third, in spite of the drive toward globalization, some sections of the Indian population—mostly in rural areas—have retained impressive levels of ethno-localization. Fourth, Caribbean Indians will continue to migrate because of inequities in the global system as well as political, economic, and social instabilities and tensions within each nation-state where Indians have migrated and settled.
