The Coalition government's policy agenda on "the Big Society" marks a major shift in the landscape. It has been described as radically passing power from the state to citizens and civil society. What does it mean for migrants, for migrant community organisations, and for communities where migrants live? What opportunities and threats does it bring for the sector? And is there any evidence yet on the impact of the new agenda? This briefing will be presented by Vaughan Jones, Chief Executive of Praxis, a community-based organisation working with migrants in London.

Speaker: Vaughan Jones, Chief Executive, Praxis
