University professors probed by Lords Committee

24 October 2012

The House of Lords Home Affairs, Health and Education EU Sub-Committee will be hearing from academics from three universities on Wednesday 24 October, to talk about the EU’s Global Approach to Migration and Mobility (GAMM)


At 11am, Wednesday 24 October 2012, Committee Room 1, Palace of Westminster

  • Professor Christina Boswell, School of Social and Political Science, University of Edinburgh
  • Professor Ronald Skeldon, Sussex Centre for Migration Research, University of Sussex
  • Professor Andrew Geddes, University of Sheffield, currently on secondment to the Migration Policy Centre of the European University Institute

Issues that the witnesses are likely to be asked about include:

  • areas in which EU migration policies have made the most – and least – progress;
  • any impact the global economic and financial crisis may have had on European migration trends within, to and from Europe;
  • whether there is any hope that Europe will be able to ‘speak with one voice’ on migration; and
  • their personal views on calls to remove international students from net migration statistics
