It’s the Death of the Ex-Pat”: Socio-Economic Impacts of Brexit on British Pensioners Living in Spain’

Brexit has created a shockwave that may have far-reaching consequences for a wide variety of individuals, communities and organisations. Drawing on 34 interviews with British pensioners, this lecture will focus on the impact of Brexit on British pensioners living in Spain and explore the actual and anticipated impacts on their health and financial vulnerability.
