Congratulations to Professor Louise Ryan, our Visiting Professor, who leads this special editon of Discover Society and Professor Maggie O'Neill who has an article in it - Migration & Hostile Environments, New Series, Volume 3, Issue 2, 3 April 2023.

This issue of Discover Society brings together discussions of groups who are often considered separately, in order to explore how anti-immigration policies and discourses operate across and within national and ethnic groups.  The authors are all leading researchers and thinkers in their field and use empirical evidence to bring novel insights into this timely and highly topical social issue.

Along with Louise Ryan and Maggie O’Neill, there are articles by Brad Blitz, Alessio D’Angelo, Alessia Delceggio, Iraklis Dimitriadis, Umut Erel, Don Flynn, Pamela Franklin, Anna Gawlewicz, Dave Hockham, Erene Kaptani, Maria Lopez, Kasia Narkowicz, Tracey Reynolds, and Sharon Wright.

This special issue grew out of a symposium hosted by the British Sociological Association in January 2023: Sociological Perspectives on Migration and the Hostile Environment.
