Call for Papers
Immigration policy in post-Brexit Britain: call for papers to a special edition of the National Institute Economic Review
Immigration is a top economic and social issue: it has fuelled economic growth and prosperity, changed the social composition of the UK and shaped the political agenda. It played a key role in the outcome of the EU referendum vote, and as a consequence the Government is developing new immigration policy to replace free movement. A wide range of options is possible, from skills and salary based criteria to regional quotas and employer sponsorship. To what extent new policy will be based on evidence of the economic and social impacts of migration, and particularly the needs of employers and the economy is as yet unclear.
The May 2019 issue of NIESR’s in-house journal seeks papers which contribute to the debate on new immigration policy and the understanding of economic and social impacts of migration to the UK. Contributions from all social science disciplines and based on quantitative or qualitative methods are invited (6,000-7,000 words). The deadline for papers is February 2019.
NIESR is likely to hold a pre-publication dissemination event to present the articles to an audience including the press, and would like authors to attend if possible.
If you would like to submit a paper, please send a 100 word outline by 30th November to h.rolfe [at] niesr.ac.uk (subject: Special%20issue%20of%20NIER%20on%20immigration) (Dr Heather Rolfe) who will be editing the special issue.
