British migration policy of the second half of the XX – the beginning of the XXI century: lessons for Russia
Abstract.The article considers British post-colonial migration policy in the context of the possibility of applying the British experience to the current migration situation in our country. The detailed analysis was applied to the legislative framework in the field of migration, as well as migration policy based on multicultural ideology. Emphasis has been put on the consequences and the influence of the mass migration from Asian and African countries on various facets of life of the British society - including political, economic, security fields, demography and the labour market.The novelty of the work is defined as the complexity analyses that led to the conclusion about the mismatch between the real and the declared migration goal setting of the British authorities. Migration laws were constantly tightened but the migration were not drastically decreased. A strategic course for building the multicultural social environment was set, but the decades of tolerance and other cultures respect propaganda resulted in exactly the opposite: segregation, marginalization, ethnic and religious division of the society. The British migration policy of the past 50-60 years failed in fact. The author highlighted key points and priorities the greatest attention should be paid to, due to the similarities between the two migration processes in our country and Britain. That will give the possibility to halt the development of negative trends analogous to the British ones and prevent scenarios threatening the security of our country.
