Integration, Disadvantage and Extremism

8 May 2013
Attlee Suite, Portcullis House, House of Commons

Date: 13:00 – 17:45, Wednesday 8 May 2013

The aim of this symposium is to reflect on the government’s integration strategy and to do so in the light of both contemporary developments and recent scholarship. We intend to bring the most current evidence-based research to bear on urgent issues of policy for an invited audience of academic experts, policy makers and parliamentarians.

John Mann MP will open the symposium, which is organised into three panels.

Integration and disadvantage today

Is localism sufficient?

The symposium is being organised by the Pears Institute for the study of Antisemitism, Birkbeck, University of London and COMPAS, University of Oxford, in partnership with the All Party Parliamentary Group Against Antisemitism.
