Breakfast Briefings

Who are the UK’s new citizens?

Friday 8 July 2011

The Integration and Citizenship project, delivered jointly by COMPAS and Birkbeck, University of London, and funded by the European Union, surveyed a large sample of people who applied for British citizenship last year, and conducted in-depth follow-up interviews with some of them.

The research explored their journey from arrival to settlement to citizenship, their experiences of the naturalisation process (including the Life in the UK test), and their integration in terms of social interaction, local belonging and feelings of Britishness.

This briefing will present a profile of Britain’s new citizens, and what we can learn from them about the relationship between settlement, citizenship and integration.

Speaker: Ben Gidley, COMPAS
