This event will examine the emerging implications of the decision of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union (Brexit) for the lives of migrants on both sides of the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland through a focus on Polish communities and Polish civil society.

It will examine efforts by Polish civil society in the Republic of Ireland to promote political participation and integration against the backdrop of a growing divergence of Polish immigrant experiences in the Irish and UK cases.
