Andrew Thompson explores the impact of decolonisation and post WWII immigration on welfare and housing in Britain and France, exploring the effects of empire on British private and public life during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; as well as imperial migrations, and public memories of empire. His most recent book is Empire and Globalisation: Networks of People, Goods and Capital in the British World, 1850-1914 (Cambridge, 2010), which he co-authored with Professor Gary Magee, an economist at Monash University in Australia.
