Immigration and Future Prosperity

Emran Mian
Sat 14 November 2015,

Immigration was one of the doorstep issues of the election campaign: both the Conservatives and Labour, as well as UKIP, campaigned on restricting immigration numbers. Yet the voters who are most concerned tend to live in areas where there is the least immigration, and the balance of economic evidence is that immigrants are positive for the economy. What are the real issues of concern? How should policy respond?

With Emran Mian (Social Market Foundation), Diane Coyle (University of Manchester), John Driffill (Birkbeck), Martin Ruhs (University of Oxford) and Susie Symes (Museum of Immigration and Diversity).
