Organised by the Institute for the Study of European Laws (ISEL).
Three years on from the date that the UK did not withdraw officially from the EU but the EU Settlement Scheme was opened to the public, this event takes stock of the position of citizens’ rights in the UK and of the UK. We will hear from experts who can speak to the experiences of EU citizens in the UK, British in the EU and even to some non-EU nationals in the UK.
From the newly established Independent Monitoring Authority (IMA) for Citizens’ Rights, to the first of its kind nationwide legal action research hub, the EU Rights & Brexit hub, to a legal charity supporting EU citizens in Scotland, to considering the wider questions of how Brexit has redefined Britain’s borders for all those who seeks to move between them, this event seeks to give a broad overview of the research and realities of citizens’ rights and the EU Settlement Scheme on that fateful day three years on.
