Immigration has been a divisive issue in the public consciousness for a while now. How has the conversation evolved?

Research suggests that public attitudes towards immigration in the UK are less extreme than national headlines and social media would have us believe, but it remains a contentious subject. Migration has been a key pivot point in the ongoing Brexit debate, and the Windrush scandal and “hostile environment” policy have kept migration at the centre of political attention. We gather a panel of commentators to discuss the shifting narratives surrounding immigration, the political impact of Brexit, and the sense of identity and belonging for migrants in the UK. 

Please accept our apologies but, due to building works taking place at RSA House, step-free access to our auditorium is currently restricted. Please contact us if you have any access queries, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. And don't forget you can watch the event live online via our Facebook Channel.
