This chapter talks about the important issues that are concerned with the social segregation and social exclusion of migrant workers in the UK. It presents an argument which states that the social and employment protection for this group of workers is often insufficient, and that the UK government has a moral obligation to attend to these deficits. The first section of the chapter shows the national context of migration policies in the UK. The chapter then reflects on the long history of immigration and the historical significance of questions of racial discrimination, ‘race’, and ethnicity to the integration of immigrant workers of the post-war period.

Keywords:   social segregation, social exclusion, migrant workers, UK, social protection, employment protection, national context, migration policies, history of immigration, racial discrimination
