The Immigration Debate

Sat 1 Feb 2014

David Aaranovitch
Trevor Phillips
Professor Paul Statham
Dr Madge Dresser
Simon Fanshawe

Migration is one of the most important issues affecting the world today. Yet conversations around the subject often go no further than whether the UK has too many or too few immigrants. Chaired by writer and broadcaster Simon Fanshawe, this event will offer a broader perspective, looking at what has driven migration historically as well as examining the forces that will drive it in the future.

The panel includes The Times columnist and author David Aaranovitch; the former chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission Trevor Phillips; Director of the Sussex Centre for Migration Research Professor Paul Statham; and the historian and slavery expert Dr Madge Dresser.
