Marginalisation in Mauritius

(p.17) 1 Marginalisation in Mauritius
Chagos Islanders in Mauritius and the UK

Manchester University Press

This chapter outlines the history of colonisation, settlement, and decolonisation in Mauritius and the Chagos Archipelago. It shows that the inhabitants of the Chagos Archipelago were already marginal within colonial Mauritius, and that their marginality was compounded by their relocation to Mauritius during the decade around independence, which was a period of social, economic, and political unrest.

Keywords:   Mauritius, Chagos Archipelago, colonisation, decolonisation
