Breakfast Briefings

What is the relationship between new immigration and community change?

Friday 22 June 2012

Migration is presumed to be a major driver of change at the local level. Government and the media regularly make the case that migration poses a threat to cohesion by weakening the sense of community and increasing competition for scarce public resources and employment opportunities.

This briefing explores these claims. Evidence of the effects and consequences of migration in different places will be reviewed and emerging community challenges considered. Lessons learnt managing the changes wrought by new migration will also be profiled.

David Robinson will draw on new research (commissioned by the Arts and Humanities Research Council) on the neighbourhood effects of new migration and research findings from his previous work exploring local experiences and consequences of migration.

Speaker: David Robinson, Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research (CRESR), Sheffield Hallam University
