Abstract

In this perspective paper, we summarise recent changes to immigration policy and analyse their potential impact on Scotland. We highlight the contributions of immigrants to the Scottish economy and demographics, and discuss the effects the new immigration policies may have on sectors such as health and social care and higher education. We also call for more transparent government research on and consideration of the regional impacts of immigration policy.
