Rebordering Britain and Britons: the politics of migration and citizenship after Brexit
- Alan Walters Building - University of Birmingham, University of Birmingham campus
- Monday 24 October 2022 (18:00-19:00)
As part of the College of Social Sciences Inaugural Lecture Series, join Professor Nando Sigona, Chair of International Migration and Forced Displacement and Director of the Institute for Research into Superdiversity, as he delivers his inaugural lecture.
How did Britain’s changing position on the world stage impact on migration to and from the UK? In what ways is the ‘Global Britain project’ reshaping the boundaries of membership for immigrants, emigrants and citizens?
'Rebordering Britain and Britons’ will explore the intersection of how governmental action and other political decision-making can impact upon migration, looking at European citizens living in the UK as well as UK citizens in Europe and exploring changes to their movements and identities.
This talk offers insights into the Brexit and migration nexus drawing on empirical research carried out as part of two collaborative ESRC-funded projects “EU families and Eurochildren in Brexiting Britain” (2017-19) and Rebordering Britain and Britons after Brexit (2020-2023).
