Roundtable: Migration and the future of Britain in Europe, London
Immigration featured prominently in the public debate ahead of the UK’s referendum on the European Union. It will also be a defining issue for the future of Britain’s relations with the EU.
Both the dynamics of public opinion to migration in Britain and Europe, and the options for post-Brexit immigration policies in the UK were analysed in a debate bringing together Renaud Dehousse, President of the EUI, Bobby Duffy, Managing Director of the Ipsos MORI Social Research Institute and Global Director of the Ipsos Social Research Institute and Phoebe Griffiths, Associate Director for Migration, Integration and Communities at the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR).
The roundtable was coordinated by the Migration Policy Centre and if the wintry weather had not intervened, Professor Andrew Geddes, Chair in Migration Studies and Director of the Migration Policy Centre, would also have joined the discussions to present MPC’s research on global migration, asylum and mobility.
