Jacqui Smith is Home Secretary, a position she has held since June 2007. Prior to this she held several ministerial posts. From 1999 she served for two years as parliamentary under secretary of state at the Department for Education. In 2001 she was promoted to minister of state for health with responsibility for social services.

The Migration Studies Unit (MSU) was founded by research students and academics in the spring of 2007 at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), where the Unit is based. The MSU promotes the cross-disciplinary study of migration. Led by the efforts of students and academics working together, the Unit engages and offers a network for scholars concerned with migration studies - taking advantage of growing interest in the field and a unique location in the cosmopolitan crossroads of London.
This event is open to LSE students and staff only. LSE staff and students who have not already registered to attend can reserve a place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before 2pm on Wednesday 5 December. A confirmation email will then be sent confirming a place at the event.
