The government and the media regularly make the case that migration must be restricted in order to ensure community cohesion and encourage integration. To shed light on the relationship, the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) recently commissioned a major report on the impacts of migration on cohesion and integration. This month's presenters include three of the four authors of that report and they will reflect on the findings of their research. They will also discuss what the findings mean for policymakers.

Speakers: Will Somerville, Migration Policy Institute, Shamit Saggar, University of Sussex, and Robert Ford, Manchester University.
