Everyone is talking about immigration. Policy makers, academics and the general public all are agreed that this is the ‘age of migration’, even if they disagree about what the response to this ought to be. But who is the migrant?
Professor Bridget Anderson will distinguish between the migrant in law, policy, data, and in the wider public debate and demonstrate how these figures do not map on to one another. She will discuss the issues this raises for citizens and our understanding of what citizenship is.
