Rebordering Britain & Britons after Brexit

Impact of Brexit on the migration in the UK


The study evaluates the impact of Brexit on the migration in the UK and determines economic implications of immigration now that UK has decided to leave the EU. Based on the available statistical data we calculate gains and losses connected with the immigration of labor force and also with the influx of asylum seekers. As a result, we present a model calculation that covers GDP created by immigrants, expenses and revenues to the state budget stemming from the economic activity of migrants, as well as taking into account the expenses necessary to provide for asylum seekers. This model allows us to evaluate the gains and losses for the UK's economy; the findings which in turn could improve the effectiveness of the receiving country's migration policy.
