Unpacking migration: regional diversity and impact on public services

Migration is multidimensional, complex and uncertain. In the UK, the topic of migration is one of the most debated issues facing both policymakers and the British public. Many members of the UK Parliament are deeply interested in migration and its implications, not only for the economy, but also for society and local communities. However, people have different opinions on migration, which is similarly reflected among policymakers. As the Government plans its new immigration policy, it is extremely important to bring evidence and impartial independent research to the UK Parliament to help inform good policy debate and contribute to well-informed policies in advance of upcoming legislation scrutiny.

In November, and in collaboration with PPS, POST launched a series of online public events and closed briefings bringing together UK parliamentarians and policy officials with responsibility for migration, representatives from UK universities and the third sector.
