Abstract

I review trends in migration to the UK since the Brexit referendum, examining first the
sharp fall in net migration from the EU that resulted, and then the recent more
dramatic exodus of foreign-born residents during the covid-19 pandemic. I describe
the new post-Brexit system, and review studies which attempt to estimate both the
impact on future migration flows and on GDP and GDP per capita. Finally, I discuss
the wider economic impact of the new system and some of the policy implications.
