NIESR Report: ‘Potential impacts on the UK of future migration from Bulgaria and Romania’

This report was commissioned to provide evidence from which the UK Government can assess the potential impacts of migration from EU2 countries following the lifting of transitional controls at the end of 2013.

To assess potential impact, the authors looked at migration from Bulgaria and Romania and at patterns and characteristics of migrants, within the EU and currently to the UK. They examined the factors which may affect the scale and direction of EU2 migration after 2013. They then explored the potential impact of any further migration from the EU2 countries on services within the UK.

The report was published in April 2013.
