Delivering maternity services in an era of superdiversity

Description
This new article released online for the Journal of Ethnic and Migration studies uses maternity services as a vehicle for exploring the experiences of new migrants and the barriers they encounter when seeking to engage with welfare services in superdiverse neighbourhoods. The article highlights widespread concerns in terms of equality of access and outcomes which are likely to extend beyond maternity services to other forms of welfare and are particularly worrying in relation to asylum seekers, failed asylum seekers and family/spousal migrants.

Podcast: NATO after the Wales Summit

Podcast: NATO after the Wales Summit
Description
In response to the crisis in Ukraine, NATO's recent summit in Newport, Wales marked a seeming return to a traditional agenda of reassurance and deterrence. NATO has taken measures to shore up the defence of its eastern allies, but to what extent does the Alliance remain a useful tool of multilateral security cooperation in an era of defence austerity, cyber-attack and the collapse of order in Syria and Iraq? How important is NATO for American and British foreign policy? And what hope is their for a continuing dialogue with Russia? These issues were addressed by experts at this event.
