Kosovans in the United Kingdom refers to people from Kosovo settling in or temporarily living in the United Kingdom. The earliest arrivals settled in London in the 1990s, with pockets of arrivals in other cities.[1] The total number of Kosovans in the UK is unknown.[2] Estimates of the population at the height of the refugee crisis and bloody Kosovo War of 1999 put it as high as 20,000, with current estimates stating 8,000–10,000.[2]
