London - European attitudes to immigration

Start: 16/11/2016 at 09:00

End: 16/11/2016 at 17:00


This one-day conference organised by the British Academy will draw on new data from the latest round of the European Social Survey to address key questions surrounding British attitudes towards migration in a European context and will explore the implications of the findings for policy-makers.

Panels of experts from academy, policy and practice will address the following questions:

  • what do Europeans feel about immigration, and how do British people compare with those in other European countries?
  • Are some migrant, refugees perhaps, more acceptable than others such as labour migrants?
  • Does it make a difference which country, ethnic or religious group the migrants come from?
  • Is Britain more or less welcoming than other countries? And how can we explain differences in attitudes?

Speakers coming from a variety of EU universities (Glasgow, Lisbon, Giessen) and beyond (Tel Aviv, Bergen,Zurich, Paraiba) will lead the discussions.
