How should the UK deal with immigrants: integration, assimilation or alienation?

A debate organised by The Economist and the RSA.

Cherished notions of ethnicity and integration are looking increasingly inadequate. Difference now seems less a question of skin colour and more one of language and culture. Fears of domestic terrorism and pressures on the welfare state have shaken both multi-culturalist and integrationist ideals. In this changed environment, how can we ensure that immigrants build a happy, safe and productive life in Britain? Do we now need to redefine our idea of nationhood?
