Sikhs in the Twenty-first Century

(p.112) Chapter 7 Conclusion

Doris R. Jakobsh

University of Hawai'i Press

This concluding chapter offers a brief look at Sikhs and Sikhism in the twenty-first century and beyond. It shows how Sikhism in the twenty-first century is entering a new era that promises to be both challenging and rewarding. In terms of numbers, Sikhism has now replaced Judaism as the fifth largest religion worldwide. The regional character of Sikhism is being altered by characteristic migration patterns of Sikhs worldwide. This has led to greater attention given to the possible effects on the tradition of global economics, politics, and religion. New cultural, diasporic, anthropological, and religious studies are emerging based on a renewed interest in Sikhism.

Keywords:   Sikhism, globalization, Sikh migration, migration patterns
