Event description
Dr Margaret Byron (University of Leicester) will examine the impact of the ‘hostile environment’ policy over the past 10 years.

About this Event

Speaker: Dr Margaret Byron (Department of Geography, University of Leicester)

Date and time: Wednesday, 6 November 2019 (4:30-6 pm), coffee and tea from 4:15 pm.

Venue: Room L66 (Fielding Johnson, 2nd floor).

Abstract: The recent terrible trauma faced by some of the children of the ‘Windrush generation’, who were unlawfully stripped of their UK citizenship, is frequently attributed to the ‘hostile environment’ introduced by the current government over the past 10 years. Some Caribbean migrants were impacted, often profoundly, by these policies. This talk argues that it is important to locate their experiences of the current policy regime within the extended, pervasive culture of discrimination and racism which has influenced policy towards colonial immigration since 1945.
