Scottish Detainee Visitors and GRAMNet round-table discussion
The forthcoming referendum on Scottish independence creates a need to raise and consider important questions about immigration policy in a future Scotland. This event provides a round-table discussion of a range of different views – including arguments for open borders – regarding policy on immigration in Scotland.
Some of the arguments in favour of immigration controls claim that too many immigrants undermine national culture and dilute or erode the indigenous heritage – more liberal arguments include the idea that immigrants contribute to cultural diversity and that immigration in the past has contributed to national heritage.
This event is part of Refugee Week Scotland.
