Former Chief Economist at the Cabinet Office, Professor Jonathan Portes, is giving a special evening seminar on Monday, 2 October on ‘Immigration after Brexit’.
The growth in immigration from the rest of the EU to the UK was a central issue in the referendum. In this talk Professor Portes will cover the potential impacts of Brexit on immigration economics. What do we know about the impacts of immigration on the UK economy and labour market? What will happen to the three million plus EU citizens who now live in the UK and the one million Brits living elsewhere in the EU? How will UK immigration policy, both towards EU citizens and those from outside the EU, change after Brexit?
Jonathan Portes is Professor of Economics and Public Policy at King’s College London and Senior Fellow at The UK in a Changing Europe. He was formerly Director of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, and before that Chief Economist at the Cabinet Office. His current research concentrates on issues related to immigration and labour mobility, both within the European Union and outside; and the economic implications of Brexit.
The seminar is hosted by the Centre for Spatial Demographics Research and the Department of Geography and Planning. It will begin at 6pm in the Lesley Hearnshaw lecture theatre, Eleanor Rathbone Building, followed by a drinks reception.
The event is free to attend, but registration is essential. Please register at: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/immigration-after-brexit-tickets-37992994068
