de Lima et al. (2011) Community consultation on poverty and ethnicity in Scotland The study by de Lima et al. (2011) seeks better understanding of income disparity and associated levels of poverty across a number of ethnic groups. Low paid Chinese, Eastern European, white Scottish and Traveller ethnic groups are included in the study. Research is conducted in Fife and Highland regions and local stakeholders contribute to the data that is analysed. Interviews sought to examine the perceptions of meaning and causes of poverty, its impact and the strategies employed to manage and ultimately escape the poverty trap. The study provides a fascinating insight into first-hand accounts of different ethnic groups’ experiences of poverty in Scotland. The subsequent discussion of policy implications is also valuable. See Barnard and Turner (2011) which examines evidence on the relationship between poverty and ethnicity across a number of domains, likewise Netto et al. (2011) and Hudson et al. (2013) which examines the link between ethnicity and poverty experienced by low paid workers. Read More Visit site Free Highland, Fife Third sector
McCollum and Findlay (2011) Employer and labour provider perspectives on Eastern European migration to the UK McCollum and Findlay (2011) examine how the role played by East European migrants in the UK labour market has altered over time. The study examines UK employers’ motivations for employing migrants from Eastern Europe and associated migration channels. In so doing, the study demonstrates the prominent role played by Eastern European migrants in the labour market. Findings show how the perspectives of those who recruit and employ Eastern European migrants are linked to the production and representation of the region’s migratory flows to the UK. Also see Jack (2009) for a study which investigates the impact Eastern European migrant workers have had on the Scottish tourism industry, Tindal et al. (2014b) for a study of immigration policy and constitutional change from the perspective of Scottish employers and industry and Danson and Jentsch (2009) for analysis of the rural labour market and the value that employers place on migrant labour.
