With the clock ticking on Brexit negotiations, immigration now lies at the heart of the UK’s future beyond EU membership.

The coming period could see a toughening of rules and rhetoric on immigration. If Brexit negotiations proceed as the Government intends, new policies could reshape our society and recast our relationship with the rest of the world.

On Tuesday 14th November 2017, CLASS, JCWI and Runnymede are bringing together leading thinkers for a day of debate and campaign-building on immigration, identity and belonging after Brexit.

Join us to consider:

  • key policy and advocacy opportunities over the coming months

  • the future of EU free movement rights

  • how to protect workers’ rights after Brexit

  • national identity and race relations in the Brexit debate

  • wider progressive reforms to the migration system

The event will run from 10am - 3pm on Tuesday 14th November 2017.

It will take place at Unite the Union, 128 Theobald's Road, London, WC1X 8TN.

Confirmed speakers include: Lisa Nandy MP, Tulip Siddiq MP, Martha Spurrier (Liberty), Ian Dunt (author and editor of, Thomas Cole (Open Britain), Professor Iyiola Solanke (Professor in EU Law and Social Justice), Faiza Shaheen (CLASS), Satbir Singh (JCWI), Omar Khan (Runnymede), Professor Steve Peers (Professor of Law), Sunder Katwala (British Future), Bell Ribeiro-Addy (Society of Black Lawyers), Maya Goodfellow (SOAS), Jan Doerfel (Immigration barrister), Oonagh O'Connor (SNP Policy Adviser) and more.
