Wed 22 Feb

Lunch & Talk with Paul Collier on Migration
22/02/2017, 12.30pm,  £12,50 (including lunch) 

Dutch Centre, in collaboration with NCL, hosts a Lunch & Talk with Professor Paul Collier on his book "Exodus: How Migration is changing the world". We will touch upon one most pressing and controversial questions of our time: Who should be allowed to immigrate and who not? What are the arguments for and against limiting the numbers? 

We are supposedly a nation of immigrants, and yet our policies reflect deep anxieties and the quirks of short-term self-interest, with effective legislation snagging on thousand-mile-long security fences and the question of how long and arduous the path to citizenship should be.
