Forthcoming Symposium about Migration

Posted by kk237 at Sep 09, 2014 04:30 PM |
“We are here because you were there”: Immigrants’ Responses to the Rise of Anti-Immigrant Discourses in Britain

The symposium will bring immigrant organisations, advocacy groups, community associations and leading British academics on migration together in order to increase not only our understanding of the current anxieties around migration but also how the immigrants themselves make sense of, and deal with, such anxieties and anti-immigration discourses and policies. Only a few years ago Britain’s diversity was an essential aspect of our Olympic bid. We need to understand not only the ‘backlash’ to this celebration of diversity but also how those who are seen as ‘problem populations’ in the UK respond to this backlash.
