From: Rita Chadha <> Date: 2 December 2013 17:26:20 GMT Subject: Migration Matters 2013 – The Full Programme
Migration Matters, is RAMFEL’s annual review of all things related to immigration, migration, race and equality throughout the year.  This is the third year we have run the programme, and the format is similar to previous years.
This year, we ask the question ‘How do or should different communities of interest, (white working class communities, women, faith groups, the voluntary sector, Jewish community), interact and relate to current issues around immigration?’  We finish the day with an evening finale at the Old Town Hall, Stratford to hear from an esteemed panel of speakers about their views on the issue, and draw upon what has been discussed throughout the day.
In addition this year, we will also be making some major announcements about RAMFEL, and our plans for the future.
