WATCH: Migration into and out of the UK after Brexit

November 6, 2019

In this panel conversation, held on 29 October 2019 in Oxford, REMINDER researchers discussed how Brexit would be likely to affect migration into and out of the UK and public debate about it.

Watch the conversation here.

Key questions for the discussion included: 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 (Director, Centre on Migration, Policy and Society and Principal Investigator of the REMINDER project).
