With the many shifts that have taken place over the past few years in the UK migration regime, the new net migration figures and the detail now about how and where migrants are living in London made available through the 2011 Census, it is a good time to bring together current knowledge and research on the impact of migration on London and its economy. The conference, chaired by Barbara Roche from ‘Migration Matters‘, draws together thematic strands from a two-year LSE London project on this topic, with expert speakers addressing recent changes from a variety of perspectives.
