The Secondary Migration of non-EU nationals in Europe
ippr, 30 Southampton Street, London WC2E 7RA
11.30am-5pm, Tuesday 22nd April 2008
While secondary migration has received attention from academics, in the
UK there has been little policy debate about it. Yet significant numbers
of non-EU nationals do migrate from one EU state to another and the UK
appears to be a popular destination for secondary migrants. The UK's
Somali, Congolese, Tamil, Nigerian and Latin American communities
include significant numbers of people who have migrated from elsewhere
in Europe. This seminar will examine this 'hidden' migratory movement.
In particular it will
* map and define who are secondary migrants
* present new research on this issue, and
* debate the public policy implications of the secondary migration
of non-EU nationals in Europe.
Speakers include Anna Lindley and Nick Van Hear, Centre for Migration,
Policy and Society, University of Oxford and Jill Rutter, Institute for
Public Policy Research.
