The "Life in the UK" Citizenship Test: Unfit for Purpose? Report

My The "Life in the United Kingdom" Citizenship Test: Unfit for Purpose? report was launched last evening in Durham Castle. This report is the most comprehensive examination available into the test available. It exposes serious problems with the test and provides several recommendations for its reform.

I've been delighted by the wide coverage across a spectrum of about 250 newspapers and news agencies worldwide, including several British papers such as Daily Express, Daily Mail, Daily StarDaily Telegraph, Evening StandardGuardian, Huffington PostIndependent, Mail on Sunday, MetroNorthern Echo, Sunday TimesSunderland Echo,  Times, Yorkshire Post and many others - including Comedy Central. I have had about a dozen or so interviews with several radio stations include BBC Live at 5 and many others. I will be putting links up shortly.

There are also blogposts and other websites running the story, such as BBC News at The Conversation, and these will be up soon, too.

Please read my new report in the meantime. Let us hope it contributes to much needed reform and soon.

UPDATE: My report can be downloaded on SSRN HERE.
