In the aftermath of the United Kingdom’s referendum on their continued membership of the European Union and the ongoing negotiations into the issue of citizens’ rights, EU27 nationals living in the UK and UK citizens living in the EU27, stand to see their legal status shift from that of mobile citizens to migrants.

This has consequences in respect to the structures that support their continued residence and rights in the places that they have made their homes. It is becoming apparent that there are outstanding questions about who will be able to stay put and on what terms?

This roundtable to be held on 21 May at the British Library is organised by the Eurochildren project with BrExpats. It brings together an expert panel to seek to reposition this discussion within the broader context of conversations about migration and citizenship, from who is a migrant? To the lived experience of becoming citizens. It explores the processes and practices of making migrants and citizens in the present-day and remembers the transformation of Commonwealth citizens’ rights.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Professor Bridget Anderson (University of Bristol)
  • Dr Leah Bassel (University of Leicester)
  • Omar Khan (Runnymede)
  • Dr Michaela Benson (Goldsmiths)
  • Dr Nando Sigona (University of Birmingham)
  • Colin Yeo (Garden Court Chambers)
