This lecture series will take an evidence-based look at some of them. In each session an academic expert will explore a broad topic such as immigration, trade or the NHS in a way that is accessible to laypersons followed by questions from the audience.
In the first session for the Lecture Series, Dr Nils Braakmann (Senior Lecturer in Economics, Newcastle University) explores the role that immigration has played in the run-up to the referendum.
This talk will focus on what we know about the impact of immigration on labour markets as well as on other areas such as public finances, public services, housing and crime.
