Immigration after Brexit: where are we going?

Immigration was a key, if not the key issue in the referendum of 2016. The last few years have seen the biggest shakeup in the UK migration system in at least half a century, coinciding with record levels of immigration across all the main routes – work, students and refugees.

This report explores what has happened to immigration, immigration policy and public attitudes towards immigration since the Brexit vote. It examines the way in which the UK government has reacted to the ending of free movement, and explores the impact of new policies on immigration levels.

It represents a state-of-the-art analysis of what has happened, where we have got to, and what might transpire in the future.

A summary of the report can be found on the UK in a Changing Europe commentary page here.
