This event considers the relationship between Brexit and citizenship, at EU and UK level. A leading litigant of citizenship rights under UK law and the Good Friday Agreement, Emma De Souza, recounts her high-profile litigation through the UK courts. The EU Citizen Settled Status Scheme is considered as to its impact on vulnerable and female applications. The place of statelessness under international law is considered as to its salience for Brexit, for UK citizens in the EU and EU citizens in the UK. The panel also considers the role of the European Parliament in protecting EU citizen rights and the place of sovereignty and citizenship in contemporary debates.
