EU Referendum – NIESR research

You can find all our research on the EU referendum here.  This covers three key areas:

the macroeconomic impacts of a decision to leave the EU. We produce and maintain NiGEM, our macroeconomic model, which was used by both HM Treasury and the OECD to analyse the impacts of the UK leaving the EU, so we are uniquely well placed both to provide an independent, objective assessment and to comment on those of others;

immigration and free movement.  We are undertaking both quantitative and qualitative research into the impact of migration on the UK labour market and the possible impact of future policy changes. In addition, we have analysed UK migration statistics and contributed extensively to the ongoing debate on their reliability

the financial sector.  We are examining how the relationship between the UK financial sector and the EU might develop, inside or outside the EU, and implications for financial stability in the UK. 

Angus Armstrong is a Senior Fellow of the UK in a Changing Europe programme. The programme, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council promotes rigorous, high-quality and independent research into the complex and ever changing relationship between the UK and the European Union (EU).  It provides an authoritative, non-partisan and impartial reference point for those looking for information, insights and analysis about UK-EU relations that stands aside from the politics surrounding the debate.  Neither NIESR nor the ESRC has any position on the referendum or the UK’s membership of the EU.
