Politics of Migration

CSMP was invited to attend a conference organised by the Centre for European Research at the University of Gothenburg in June 2012.  The conference considered how European political parties grapple with the challenges posed by immigration and CSMP presented a paper on the particular Scottish context.

The paper provides an analysis of the different approaches to migration taken by successive governments at both Holyrood and Westminster and considers possible future developments if the Scottish electorate votes for indfependence in 2014 or if further powers are devolved from Westminster to Holyrood.  It can be accessed by clicking here.
