The Young Fabians' current research pamphlet, A Nation Divided: Building A United Kingdom, seeks to explore the extent to which the cultural, social, economic, intergenerational and regional divisions across the UK have led to a breakdown in community cohesion and social integration.

The first event of the project series focuses on the topic of integration and immigration. Immigration has brought with it a host of opportunities and advantages within the UK economically and socially. However, for a country that prides itself on its tolerance and multiculturalism, many of our communities face extraordinary challenges in terms of community integration between different groups.

Over the course of the evening, we will be discussing, amongst other issues, the following:

  • The Government's recently published Integrated Communities Strategy Green Paper
  • The extent to which multiculturalism exists within our cities
  • The perceived barriers to integration
  • How far levels of integration impact upon public attitudes towards migration.

We will be discussing these issues with the following experts:

  • Sunder Katwala, Director of British Future
  • Dr Laurence Lessard-Phillips, School of Social Policy, University of Birmingham
  • Richard Norrie, Co-founder of the Integration Hub
  • David Goodhart, Director of Demography, Immigration & Integration Unit, Policy Exchange 

Please note this event takes place in Committee Room 19 - you will need to leave 15minutes to pass through parliament security.
