The future of the left since 1884

Open and ethical

Human rights abuses, immigration scandals and poor decision-making have left the immigration system in need of urgent reform, according to a new Fabian Society report.



Open and Ethical identifies how, in the wake of the Windrush scandal, the UK’s migration and asylum systems are failing migrants, asylum seekers and the wider public. The government’s recent immigration white paper represented a missed opportunity to make crucial changes.

In this collection of essays edited by Kate Green MP and Mike Buckley, political voices from across the spectrum join policymakers and charities in calling for the UK’s broken system to be fixed and for public confidence to be rebuilt.

The report’s authors include Labour MP David Lammy, SNP MP Stuart McDonald, Marvin Rees (Labour mayor of Bristol), Jill Rutter (British Future), Conservative peer Baroness Philippa Stroud (Legatum Institute) and Ryan Shorthouse of the centre-right think tank Bright Blue.
