Abstract

The research highlights the vital role of immigration in the continuing recovery and redevelopment of the island of Montserrat during and after a series of volcanic eruptions. Immigration has helped to revive the island both economically and socially. However, the rapid and relatively unmanaged increase in immigration following the relaxation of immigration controls has also led to significant new issues, in particular the social and political marginalization of the newcomers, which could eventually hinder the recovery process. The persistent marginalization of immigrants also leads to them being more vulnerable to natural hazards.
