The Economist magazine is conducting an on-line debate about immigration this week. The motion is “This house believes that immigration is endangering European society”.
The motion has been proposed by David Goodhart, Editor-at-Large of Prospect Magazine and opposed by Philippe Legraine, an economist.
Our Chairman, Sir Andrew Green, has been invited to contribute an 800 word piece as an expert commentator. That has now been posted on their web-site.
There have so far been 325 comments in the debate and the vote is extremely close at 50:50, the debate will remain open until the evening of Tuesday 16 August.
