Housing, Employment & Migrants’ Rights in an Age of Austerity

April 19, 2017

Migrants’ Rights Network hold a panel to discuss housing, employment and migrants’ rights in an age of austerity.

  • Wednesday 19 April 2017, 6:30 – 8pm
  • Senate Alumni Lecture Theatre, SOAS, Senate House Building, London WC1E 7HU

The panel will explore the potential issues that Britain leaving the EU has for European citizens currently living here, as well as the situation for non EU migrants. Over the last decade, non-EU migrants have had to navigate an increasingly complex immigration system, the proliferation of internal border controls, restrictions on their access to public services, and a climate of rising anti-immigrant sentiment and hate crime.

  • Maggie Dewhurst  Chair of the Couriers and Logistics Branch of the IWGB Union.
  • Dr Omar Khan – Director at the Runnymede Trust.
  • Sue Lukes – Expert on migration, local services and housing.
  • Jonathan Portes  Professor of Economics and Public Policy at King’s College, London
  • The discussion will be chaired by MRN’s Director, Fizza Qureshi.
