What Do We Know and What Should We Do About Immigration?

  • Jonathan Portes - National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR), UK


June 2019 | SAGE Publications Ltd

What Do We Know and What Should We Do About Immigration? is part of a new book series offering up-to-date overviews of key issues of public concern based on social science research, featuring topics often misrepresented or simplified in the mainstream media.

Written by a leading expert with an accessible writing style, this book on immigration is a conversation starter and a way to spark informed, educated debate. It does this by providing illuminating, data-rich descriptions (what do we know?) and bold, prescriptive proposals (what should we do?). Questions which once seemed opaque are made clear, including –

  • What do we mean by immigration?
  • Why is this an important topic now?
  • What is the history of immigration to the UK?
  • What can we do about immigration?

Intended for anyone seeking a quick and authoritative understanding of immigration in the UK in the modern era.
