Event description
A panel discussion at Oxford University about the likely impact of Brexit on migration into and out of the UK.

About this Event

In this panel conversation, experts on policy, media and economics will discuss how Brexit is likely to affect migration into and out of the UK and public debate about it. Key questions for the discussion include: Will migration decrease after Brexit? What sectors are more/less likely to experience labour shortages? Will there be a change in the way the UK media covers migration stories after Brexit? Will there be a shift from focusing on EU migration to covering stories related to asylum and other forms of migration from outside the EU? What are the implications of Brexit for the employment opportunities and outcomes of EU nationals living in the UK? Will Brexit lead to large scale emigration from the UK?

Speakers:

  • Madeleine Sumption (Director, the Migration Observatory and Member of the UK Migration Advisory Committee)
  • Robert McNeil (Deputy Director, the Migration Observatory and former journalist)
  • Zovanga Kone (Economist and Postdoctoral Fellow with the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society)

Moderator:

  • Carlos Vargas-Silva (Research Director and Associate Professor, Centre on Migration, Policy and Society and Principal Investigator of the REMINDER project).

Drinks to follow from 6:00-6:30pm.

All are welcome. The conversation will be live-streamed via Oxford Live, https://livestream.com/oxuni/uk-migration-brexit, and the COMPAS Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/COMPAS.Oxford/

The event is presented by the REMINDER project, a Horizon 2020 research initiative investigating the nature and impacts of migration within the European Union (grant agreement No 727072).
