The Equality Implications of Being a Migrant in Britain: a review

Friday 24 April 2009, Middlesex University,
Room C219, Hendon Campus, The Burroughs, London NW4 4BT

Although migrants are a hot topic in the UK, there are few hard facts.
There is no agreement on how we define “migrants” and a lack of data on
equalities and migrants, especially in relation to  age, disability,
gender, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.   Their
diversity has implications for the development of immigration and
citizenship policies.

This EHRC-commissioned report reviews the available information about
inequalities that migrant workers and their families face in Britain
today. It sets out the rapidly changing policy context and its
implications, analyses recent data, and examines the experiences of
migrants themselves.
