Manchester has a long history of migration both local and global, transforming its culture, economy and the city. This event will be a One Day Symposium on Global Migration to put forth a number of perspectives on how global skilled migration affects the local economy and society in the context of devolution, public spending and policy choices.
Discussions will focus on the consequences of Brexit and the changing public attitudes to migrants and migration in the UK which has never been so challenging and with far reaching impact on our local economy and work, multi-cultural lives and social integration.
This event is also timely in the context of India’s 70th Year of Independence Celebrations, as the Northwest has seen a tremendous inflow of Commonwealth immigrant wave(s) from the Indian subcontinent for many decades.
