A country study on immigrants from the new Member States to the United Kingdom
As reported in: The social dimension of intra-EU mobility: Impact on public services
This country case study was submitted by IES to the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound) in July 2014.
It was one of a collection based on different countries, carried out by different institutions, which were used as the foundation for the Eurofound report 'Social dimension of intra-EU mobility: Impact on public services'.
The case study represents the results of a literature review, data analysis and qualitative research conducted into the impact on UK public services of immigrants from the new Member States.
The report starts by outlining the findings of our literature review which contextualises this UK country study and provides an update on recent welfare reforms with regards to EU citizens. The report then goes on to highlight the findings of our quantitative and qualitative data results before drawing together conclusions and policy recommendations.
