CEP election analysis

Immigration


Immigration remains a highly contentious issue and its purported effects on the labour market and the wider economy are still highly contested. The discussion in this briefing is intended as a short overview of what we know and what we don’t know about immigration to the UK, its economic effects and the possible direction of future migration policy. A longer version of the briefing discusses many of the points raised in more detail. There are links to the relevant discussion throughout this briefing.
