Trinity Term 2015

Immigration and democracy in the UK today

Thursdays 14.00 - 15.30
Seminar Room, Pauling Centre, 58a Banbury Road, Oxford

This seminar series considers the role of immigration on democracy in the UK as the fascinating, and often confusing, 2015 General Election unfolds.

The series will cover the changing electorate; the loss of trust in British politicians over the issue of immigration; media narratives and their impact on public opinion and policy; the rise of anti-immigration parties and policies; the impact of immigration as an issue on the 2015 election results; and the key electoral battleground issue of the NHS and its complex relationship with immigration.

Convened by Rob McNeil
