Sri Lankan Tamil Diaspora

The Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora refers to the global diaspora of the people of Sri Lankan Tamil origin. It can be said to be a subset of the larger Sri Lankan as well as Tamil diaspora.

Like other diasporas, Sri Lankan Tamils are scattered and dispersed across the globe, with concentrations in South Africa, United Kingdom, Canada, India, Europe, Australia, USA, Malaysia, Singapore, Seychelles and Mauritius. Significant segments of the Tamil diaspora prefer to be labeled "Eelam" or "Eezham" Tamils, as a reference to an aspired separate Tamil state on the island of Sri Lanka.
