Approaches to Migration

June 21, 2018

Migration matters. It has risen to near the top of concerns expressed in opinion polls in the UK and across Europe.

For many politicians, the EU referendum result was a clear instruction from the British people that they wanted to reduce immigration levels.

But is it all as clear cut as that?

Joining us today are Daniel Pryor, Head of Programmes at the Adam Smith Institute, and Kristian Niemietz, Head of Health and Welfare at the Institute of Economic Affairs.

Interviewed by Digital Officer Madeline Grant, Daniel and Kristian examine how people in Britain really feel about migration and where the nuances lie. They discuss the economic benefits of immigration - as well as its impact on culture and social cohesion.

Finally, they lay out their migration policies, in an ideal world, and examine approaches that would be compatible with public opinion.
