  • Descrição: This special issue of South East Asia Research has three aims. First, it brings new work on Filipinos and the Philippines from an emerging generation of scholars into dialogue with contributions from more established UK-based scholars. Our contributors thus include Filipinist academics partly trained in the UK and UK scholars who have recently begun to work on Filipino themes. Second, though not exclusively focused on the UK, the special issue highlights its increasing importance as a destination for a variety of Filipinos. In so doing, it foregrounds the diversity of a global diaspora that has come to be associated with particular host countries and regions and with migrants stereotypically identified as impoverished and hyper-exploited domestic and care workers. Contributors to this issue draw on research and encounters with Filipinos who are variously living, working, studying or passing through the UK as immigrants, migrant workers, students and sailors, and with contacts in their wider Filipino networks.
