This international workshop explored the relationship between migration policies in both regions and the responses of immigrants to these policies in the urban areas. The workshop covered a wide range of themes, including: housing, health, employment, language, community relations, citizenship, education, subjective well-being relating to migrants in the UK and Latin America.

Along with the growth of diversity in cosmopolitan cities all over the world, there has been a rapidly heating debate about migration policies and regulations. We want to consider the ways in which the urban is a site for integration.

Early Career Researchers from the UK and Brazil attended this workshop in Brasilia, Brazil, covered by the Newton Fund Researcher Links programme.

This event was co-organised by Andreza de Souza Santos, Carlos Vargas-Silva and Michael Keith.
