Liverpool, which was once a slave trading centre, has a long history of immigration and emigration due to it being an important port town. Liverpool has long been an extremely deprived city and was the site of serious riots in the 1980s.  More recently, it has been the focus of major regeneration projects, and it was named European Capital of Culture in 2008.
