In 2017 578,000 people migrated to the UK, making us the 5th most popular country to emigrate to. Headlines about the ‘immigration crisis’ continue to dominate the media. But do your students understand what this means in reality?
In partnership with leading law firm Allen and Overy, Young Citizens has developed a new classroom resource focusing on migration.
During the course of the resource students explore the various reasons that lead people to migrate. They unpack the differences between refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants, examining key pieces of legislation to see what rights migrants have in both national and international law. Finally students are asked to analyse a number of real life case studies in order to put the law to the test.
