Integration is a key issue in migration debates and policy making in the UK and around the world. There are multiple definitions of integration, but common themes that emerge from all of them are that integration has many dimensions, involves both the migrant population and the communities in which they live, and is a process that takes place over time.
This page brings together data and resources that are relevant to debates about migrant integration in the UK. It will be updated throughout 2019, with new materials including a guide to local-authority level data on migration and further thematic briefings on questions such as social integration, migrants’ financial security, and discrimination.
