Global Migration, Ethnicity and Britishness

John Salt co-edits Leverhulme Programme volume

Global Migration, Ethnicity and Britishness

April sees the publication of Global Migration, Ethnicity and Britishness, edited by Tariq Madood and John Salt as a key outcome of the Bristol–UCL Leverhulme Research Programme on Migration and Citizenship (2003–2009). There are also UCL contributions by Clare Dwyer and Peter Wood. The book explores topical issues relating to British migration and integration, from people smuggling to elite labour migration, and from the mobility of global corporate expertise to international student and academic exchange. It also examines the concepts of social capital, social cohesion and Britishness, the nature of ethnic capital, and shows how religion, through aspects of Muslim behaviour, is becoming a boundary of Britishness at a time when significant sections of the ethnic majority evince scepticism about multiculturalism.
