This article begins with a conceptualization, in legal-pluralist and agency-oriented terms, of the legal implications of the Bangladeshi presence in Britain. It then examines how immigration restrictions, introduced particularly in the 1980s, were aimed at preventing the settlement of Bangladeshis. There is then discussion of how some concrete legal problems have been considered in actual court decisions. The article thereby considers the extent to which English law maintains a largely ethno-centrist perspective vis-à-vis the Bangladeshi presence.
