This chapter consolidates the main arguments of the monograph. It highlights the ongoing connections between the United Kingdom, South Africa and Rhodesia in the decades after the Second World War both in the form of migration flows and networks and in the persistence of the ideologies of race that had long underpinned settler colonial and imperial rule. In reframing the history of decolonisation through this transnational lens, it challenges the persistent narrative that sets metropolitan Britain apart from the racism and violence of the settler colonies of southern Africa in the second half of the twentieth century. It concludes with a discussion of the ongoing legacies of these racialised immigration policies in the United Kingdom in the form of the hostile environment and the Windrush scandal.
