Globalisation and London – The Results of Migration

Globalisation and London – The Results of Migration

The paper is separated in two parts; Maximum of 700 words for each parts (Questions 1+2=700 words and Questions 3+4=700 words). I don’t mind if both parts are in the same document of course 🙂 Here are the instructions (the referenced literatures are located in 3 PDFs which are included in the request instruction): Globalisation and London Unit 3: The Results of Migration Developing a critical assessment of the claims made about the consequences of migration into London is the purpose of this Unit. As in many countries, immigration policy is controversial, not least because of its alleged economic, social, and political consequences. While debates about such policies can be emotive, this matter can also be analysed dispassionately from different perspectives and with different outcomes in mind. That is what we propose to do in this Unit. (For background on migrant population into London, take a look at the charts and tables in the following two readings: Anna Karosova and Carlos Vargas-Silva, “London: Census Profile,” Migration Observatory, Oxford University, 20 May 2013. Kerwin Datu, “Settlement patterns of migrants from rich and poor countries into the London Metropolitan region since 2001”, chapter 1 in Ben Kochan (ed.) Migration and London’s Growth, London School of Economics electronic book, 2014.) The core of this assignment is to begin thinking through the competing claims made by analysts about the effects of migration on London and the methods and evidence necessary to test those claims. As the Unit covers two weeks, so do the readings. For the first week please read the following: Jonathan Portes, “Immigration and the UK economy” in Ben Kochan (ed.) Migration and London’s Growth, London School of Economics electronic book, 2014. (8 pages). Professional Custom Writing Services from the Experts!.Ian Gordon, “Migration and the case for a higher National Minimum Wage in London,” in Ben Kochan (ed.) Migration and London’s Growth, London School of Economics electronic book, 2014. (9 pages). Jonathan V. Beaverstock, “Sustaining the City of London: the role of highly-skilled immigration in banking, financial and professional services,” in Ben Kochan (ed.) Migration and London’s Growth, London School of Economics electronic book, 2014. (17 pages). Please prepare answers of a maximum of 700 words in total to the following two questions: 1. Making reference to facts about migration into London where relevant, succinctly summarise the claims made about the effects of migration on the labour market in London in the short term and longer term. 2. For a claim made about the effects of migration on London living standards, propose a way to employ quantitative or qualitative evidence to evaluate that claim. Repeat this for two other claims. Notes: 1. Many claims relate to different types of effects, so care is needed in assessing the material. 2. A way or method of evaluating a claim made should identify evidence or circumstances that falsify the claim. For the second week, please read the following: David Goodhart,”London’s Churning,” in Ben Kochan (ed.) Migration and London’s Growth, London School of Economics electronic book, 2014. (10 pages) Shamit Saggar, “London as a migration city in the context of UK politics,” in Ben Kochan (ed.) Migration and London’s Growth, London School of Economics electronic book, 2014. (15 pages). Ian Gordon et. al. “Conclusions,” in Ben Kochan (ed.) Migration and London’s Growth, London School of Economics electronic book, 2014. (4 pages).
