What is the impact of new migration on cohesion and integration? Will Somerville, Shamit Saggar and Robert Ford


The government and the media regularly make the case that migration must be restricted in order to ensure community cohesion and encourage integration.

This briefing reflects on that research, and discusses implications for policy-makers.
