This chapter discusses immigration to the United Kingdom from 1990 to the present day, focusing on trends and policies since the election of the Labour Party (first under Tony Blair in 1997). During this period, there has been high sustained net immigration to the United Kingdom, more diverse in its character than in the previous waves. The policy response has been radical, opening some routes of immigration arrivals while closing others, and moving from a multicultural race relations model of immigrant incorporation to one of integration. Outcomes for immigrants themselves have been mixed, with positives associated with most groups in the second generation.
