Anti-immigration populism: Can local intercultural policies close the space?

Policy Network will host a round-table breakfast seminar on 'Anti-immigration populism: Can local intercultural policies close the space?'

This event launches our 2011-2012 project continuing the work on immigration in partnership with the Barrow Cadbury Trust.

This new project, titled 'Immigration, populism and electoral politics', will look at political discourse on immigration among mainstream parties and how it has responded to the challenge of populism.

Ricard specialises in research dealing with contemporary issues of liberal democracy in contexts of diversity, especially the relationship between democracy, citizenship and immigration

Respondents

Fiyaz Mughal OBE, founder and director of Faith Matters and former Liberal Democrat councillor
Chair: Anita Hurrell, senior researcher at Policy Network
