Migration Policy Scotland

Promoting a constructive approach to migration

Migration Policy Scotland is a new, independent think tank in Scotland. We work to improve immigration systems and enhance migration experiences through research, policy influence and inclusive engagement.

We aim to offer principled and effective solutions to the challenges that migration may pose, while actively championing the benefits it brings.

In MPS’ Launch publication leading experts give their views on what lies ahead on migration for Scotland. What trends do they see in the underlying drivers and what impacts are expected? Analysis of the main challenges and opportunities and the options for Scotland.

This edited collection illuminates future prospects on migration for Scotland in relation to: the economy and labour demand, politics and public attitudes, constitutional affairs, demographics, human rights and communities.

Our programme is now available. It outlines our aim to provide a home for open discussion and informed response to the opportunities and challenges migration brings and explains our priorities and way of working.

MPS seeks to provide thought leadership and infrastructure development and focus on migration systems and migration experiences. Our initial priorities are to respond to the impacts of covid and the impacts of brexit on migration to Scotland.
