Oxford as a city has a very particular history. The town grew around the University in the late 14th Century and arguably the university has dominated its development ever since. The city has grown an international reputation as one of the oldest centres of learning, but actually what is it like living here? Beyond the University what has happened with industrial boom and decline? What are the realities of inequality and migration?
Nicola Headlam, Researcher at COMPAS will introduce some of the background to these issues and how the city has been planned over the years. Bridget Anderson will help us to think about migration and who is a migrant within this context.
