The UK’s potential departure from the European Union has been the biggest political issue in British media and policy debate join 2016 so far. In many respects the referendum on EU membership has often looked much more like a referendum on the U.K.’s migration policy, and on the role of the EU as a source of migrants to UK.
In late 2015 and early 2016 the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS) organised a series of breakfast briefings to explore some of the key facets of the migration component of the Brexit debate. Leading thinkers from the University of Oxford and elsewhere shared thoughts on the labour market, legal, security, human rights and welfare dimensions of the Brexit debate.
