Since the early 1990s global migration flows have become larger in scale and more varied in form. In the UK, controversy has surrounded this new phase of migration and it has often been assumed to be having a detrimental affect on the well-being of settled residents. Yet, there is dearth of information about the impacts of new immigration and what evidence does exist is curiously placeless, making it difficult to say anything about local effects. This paper is an attempt to fill this gap in understanding by outlining a framework to support the exploration of neighbourhood effects of new immigration. At its heart lies a commitment to three types of explanation for geographical variations in local experiences of new immigration: the individuals living in a place; the opportunity structures apparent in the local environment; and the sociocultural features of local communities.
