Migration 39: What impact has European Union migration had on Britain?

This enquiry brings the topic right up to date, focusing on the experiences of European Union migrants who arrived in Britain in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Students first re-cap some of the key pieces of legislation that they have considered in the topic so far, before learning more about the impact of Britain’s entry into the EEC/EU on patterns of migration to Britain.

The enquiry emphasises the benefits of EU migration for Britain, as students are challenged to categorise evidence about the economic and social impacts of EU migrants on British life.

Finally, students are equipped to answer a 4-mark exam question, in which they compare the reasons for European Union migration in the 21st century with the reasons for Irish migration in the 19th century.
