Manchester as Cosmopolis at Number 70 Oxford Street, Manchester, 10 May 2017 - Book now

Cosmopolis: a city inhabited by people from many different countries.

Manchester has a long history of migration, both local and global – one that feels particularly relevant in the aftermath of Brexit. This one-day symposium will explore perspectives on how global skilled migration affects the local economy and society, reflecting on the changing public attitudes to migrants in the UK and the far-reaching impact on our local economy, social integration and workforce. Coinciding with India’s 75th Year of Independence celebrations, the event will feature a public engagement session on the ‘History of South Asian Migration in the UK’. a key note speech by Professor Saskia Sassen of The University of Columbia and papers on aspects of skilled migration.
