ECIPE Webinar: Them and Us – How Immigrants and Locals can Thrive Together

November 25 2020
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Philippe Legrain
Time: 15:00

Philippe Legrain talks about his new book on immigration.

Few issues have caused as much political controversy in Europe as immigration. But are we really having the right conversation about immigration? In a new and powerful book, Them and Us: How Immigrants and Locals can Thrive Together, Philippe Legrain argues that immigration pays many types of dividends and that societies open to immigrants will fare a lot better than closed societies – and not just in economic terms. Legrain puts forward a ‘patriotic’ case for immigration and addresses many complex issues like ‘illegal’ immigration and what newcomers need to do to fit into society.
