What's new from the project?

It's been a couple of months since our last newsletter and—surprise, surprise—we've been busy with the research and with just keeping up to date with Brexit and all its twists and turns. 

Here's the headlines:

Help us help you ... 

We need your help to get our report Our March report What does Brexit mean for UK Citizens living in the EU27? Talking Citizens' Rights with UK citizens across the EU27 into the right hands. The report is concise and highlights that many UK citizens living in the EU27 desire a clear and credible guidance about what they should do to secure their residence in the places they call home. With this in mind, we have have the report translated into French and Spanish so that the report may be communicated to local officials in France and Spain. Those of you living in France and Spain might help us out by downloading and sending on these reports to any local officials that you might be in touch with.

From Mobile Citizens to Migrants

We hosted our first event in May. This focussed on locating the discussion of citizens' rights and Brexit into the broader context of migration governance and citizenship rights. It featured expert panelists Aliyyah Ahad (Migration Policy Institute), Michaela Benson (Goldsmiths, University of London), Nadine El-Enany (Birkbeck), Omar Khan (Runnymede Trust) and Nando Sigona (University of Birmingham). 

We recorded the event, and have now made the recordings available through three episodes of our podcast series (Episodes 24-26).

What's next?

We've been struggling to keep up with our own deadlines. This means that some of the reports we had promised would be out by now are still in the works. We'll be trying to catch up—Brexit permitting (!)—over the summer.

Reports in progress include Michaela's report about her research in Toulouse, Chantelle's report about the extent and ways in which overseas UK citizens are represented in UK parliament, Katherine's report on Freedom of Movement and UK citizens in the EU27, and Mike and Karen's report on how younger UK citizens living and working in southern Spain understand Brexit and its impact on their lives. 

You can check in on our progress between newsletters on our dedicated webpage

That's all for this month, and I'll be in touch again soon!
