Would an 'Australian-style' points-based immigration system work in the UK?
The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) and Laura Devine Immigration are delighted to invite you to an event on how a points-based immigration system could work in the UK. This will take place on Wednesday 30th October, 09.00-10.30am at IPPR, 14 Buckingham Street, London, WC2N 6DF. Please arrive at 08.45am for an 09.00am start.
The new Prime Minister and Home Secretary have announced that they want the UK's post-Brexit immigration policy to be based on an 'Australian-style' points-based system. The Home Office has commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee to explore the Australian model and other international comparators for examples of best practice.
But what does an 'Australian-style' points-based system mean in practice? To what extent should the new proposals build on or revise last year's immigration white paper? And what lessons can be learnt internationally on the design of points-based systems?
This event will explore these questions with a range of leading experts at a critical juncture for the UK's future immigration system.
