The uniqueness of the presence of Indian diaspora in Europe lies in the fact that it is primarily
a post World War II phenomenon; also, it is essentially a skill-based emigration. Though this
is similar to the emigration of Indians to the other parts of the developed world, yet, history
of the Indians diaspora in Europe is different due to colonial experiences of the same nations
in the past. Indian population in Europe amounts to about 5-8 % of the total population of
Europe. Indian emigration to the European Union countries took place in response to demand
for labour and skilled professionals for the economic reconstruction of Europe. These Indian
diasporas who have been settled in the European nations have contributed immensely to their
host nations and showcase a distinct identity building process.
