New Ideas Fund: Public sentiment towards immigration in Wales

Bookmark and Share
  • Release date: 3 January 2013
The report investigated public sentiments towards immigrants, how they relate to residents’ national identifications and how sentiments in Wales compare to the other nations and regions of the UK.

The report suggests that stronger opposition toward immigration could be linked to ‘narrower’ national identities. More prevalent, for example, amongst those considering themselves ‘Welsh’ or ‘English’ rather than ‘British’ or a combination of national identities.
