Seminar by Professor Jonathan Portes (King’s College London) - 6pm

Followed by a drinks reception (sponsored by the Centre for Spatial Demographics Research)

Location: Lesley Hearnshaw lecture theatre, Eleanor Rathbone Building

The growth in immigration from the rest of the EU to the UK was a central issue in the referendum. What do we know about the impacts of immigration on the UK economy and labour market: and after Brexit, what will happen to over 3 million EU27 citizens who now live in the UK (and more than a million Brits elsewhere in the EU)? How will UK immigration policy, both towards EU citizens and those from outside the EU, change after Brexit? 

Jonathan Portes is Professor of Economics and Public Policy at King’s College London and Senior Fellow at The UK in a Changing Europe (www.ukandeu.ac.uk). He was formerly Director of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, and before that Chief Economist at the Cabinet Office. His current research concentrates on issues related to immigration and labour mobility, both within the European Union and outside; and the economic implications of Brexit. Other research interests include labour markets, fiscal policy, social security and welfare, and the use of evaluation and evidence in public policy.
