A Place To Call Home Exhibition - EUROCHILDREN

Following the EU-referendum, the Eurochildren project looks at how mixed-nationality EU families living in the UK express their sense of belonging in relation to the UK and EU. The project explores the human and emotional costs of this sudden political shift when ‘us’ and ‘them’ are one and the same.

Through the study of Eurochildren, their families, their experience and responses to Brexit, this project  – funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as part of The UK in Changing Europe initiative – aims to portrait the emergence of a new politics of belonging which reconfigures discursively and legally who belong to a post-EU Britain and establish a baseline for future research on migration and settlement decision making in families with EU27 nationals following the formal exit of the European Union.
