Выдержка из работы

Although the findings of the works mentioned above might be useful from the statistical, as well as from the methodological point of view, it should be noted that the number of available research regarding immigration in Glasgow, or even in Scotland, is extremely small. There is some evidence given by such researchers as Malcolm and Vargas-Silva. The former wrote a work on immigration situation in Glasgow (Malcolm, 2005), whereas the latter considered Scotland (Vargas-Silva, 2013). However, none of them considered the public opinion of Glaswegians towards immigrants. This literature review will be divided into three themes: the current situation in Glasgow, a section about variables that affect public opinion about immigration and a section considering attitudes of citizens towards immigrants in the UK.
