Immigration and Future Cities (2)

Is Cosmopolitan Confidence Part of the Problem?

Sunder Katwala
Thu 19 November 2015,

This second session on immigration examines the pressure of change on cities and their surrounding areas. Cities generally are comfortable with immigration, it’s said. But is this true? If there is less confidence outside the city, could this pose problems for city-regions? Could making the positive case for diversity in cities build greater confidence elsewhere – or might that backfire by generating a backlash against the cosmopolitan worldview from those who feel less secure about change? about change? Jeremy Cliffe (Economist) and Sunder Katwala discuss with John Harris (Guardian), Gary Younge, Councillor Hibaq Jama (Bristol City Council) and others.

This event can be booked individually (£7/£6) or with the Immigration and Cities (1): The Pressures of Change event at the special price of £12/£10.
