Hostile Environment w/ Maya Goodfellow

— PRSC
Bristol Launch for Hostile Environment: How migrants became the scapegoats of contemporary mainstream politics
time:18:30
price: Tickets Below

Information:

As refugees drowned in the Mediterranean, the UK Government proudly announced that the aim of its immigration policy was to create a ‘hostile environment’ for undocumented immigrants. Despite study after study confirming that immigration is not damaging the economy or putting a strain on public services, migrants continue to be blamed for all the UK’s ills. How did we get here?

Maya Goodfellow offers a compelling answer and illuminates the dark underbelly of contemporary immigration policies. Talking to politicians, immigration lawyers, and immigrants themselves, Goodfellow examines how the media and successive governments have created and fuelled anti-immigration politics over the last fifty years. Ultimately, Hostile Environment reveals the distinct forms of racism and dehumanisation that result from these policies. Goodfellow’s book is a crucial reminder of the human cost to treating immigration as a problem.

Chaired by Dr Nikesh Shukla, the editor of 'The Good Immigrant’ and author of 'Coconut Unlimited’

Bar open at 6:30pm, 6:45pm start
