The economic impact of immigration on London seminar
City Hall, London SE1 2AA
In 2007, London provided a home to an estimated 518,000 irregular migrants. In this seminar, GLA Economics brings together experts in this field to discuss the evidence base used to inform policy development for migration related issues. Speakers will discuss how immigration and in particular irregular immigration impacts on the UK and London economies. We will be launching a report by the London School of Economics that seeks to better understand the potential economic impact of allowing those with an irregular status to become regularised.
Jonathan Wadsworth, Professor of Economics, Royal Holloway College
Ian Gordon, Professor of Human Geography, LSE.
Christine Whitehead, Professor of Housing
John Hollis, Demographic Consultant, GLA.
In addition to the speakers above, Tony Travers and Kathleen Scanlon (co-authors of the report) will take part in a panel discussion.
