POINTS-BASED IMMIGRATION IN CONTEXT

Points-Based Immigration in Context: Research and Campaign Strategies

http://www.pbiscampaigning.org/

Conference 16th October 2010
10am-4pm
University of London Union
Malet Street
London WC1

This conference will present new research on issues related to the points-based immigration system (PBIS) as it affects Further and Higher Education. This is a system that unfairly restricts the ability of international students and staff to come to the UK, turns staff into immigration officials and treats international students as potential threats to national security.

The conference will assess:

a) The wider significance of immigration;

b) The full consequences of PBIS on the university;

c) The characteristics of new systems of regulation and surveillance in universities and colleges.

The conference aims to offer both expertise in research but also a focus for campaigners who object to the fundamentally discriminatory nature of the rules.
