In most developed countries immigration policy is high on the political agenda. But what happens to migrants after their arrival - integration and social cohesion - has received less attention, yet these conditions matter to migrants and to wider society. Drawing on fieldwork in London and eastern England, Moving up and getting on is the first accessible, yet comprehensive, text to critique the effectiveness of recent integration and social cohesion policies and calls for a stronger political leadership. Written for those interested in public policy, the book argues that if the UK is to be successful in managing migration, there needs to be greater emphasis on the social aspects of integration and opportunities for meaningful social contact between migrants and longer-settled residents, particularly in the workplace.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There are few more pressing issues than making integration work in the UK, and few better authors to explain how to achieve this goal. Jill Rutter has written an indispensable book: let us hope our political leaders take note." Dr Khalid Koser MBE, Executive Director, Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF)
"This is an essential book for policy makers. Based on a decade's research it offers rigorous analysis and practical solutions" Barbara Roche, former Minister of State for Asylum and Immigration
"This book takes an important step forward, rejecting simplistic ideas about `integration' and by recognising that cohesion revolves around the ability of all people - not just migrants - to manage conflict and change. Jill Rutter also suggests practical ways in which societies can invest in this learning process." Professor Ted Cantle CBE, The iCoCo Foundation
