Brexit and Changes in Migration

Brexit effects

In the recent history of the UK, Brexit has been one of the most significant socio-political changes; it has determined many macro turmoils, among which new dynamics in migration to this area. 

In the second episode of Borders & Belonging podcast (production by the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Migration & Integration program at Toronto Metropolitan University) the host Maggie Perzyna explores the topic with Alex Bulat, a Romanian-born councillor on Cambridgeshire County Council, Bridget Anderson (Bristol University) and Aija Lulle (Loughborough University). 

A few years after the decision of the UK to exit the European Union, it is now possible to develop an analysis of the impacts and effects of this historical decision. Over the discussion, the guests debate the role that immigration had on British voters in 2016 and whether or not this new political status has been effective over the control of this phenomenon.
