The Brexit negotiations have raised a series of questions about the political and social rights of EU citizens in the UK. This round table organised by the UCL Grand Challenge of Justice and Equality in collaboration with the Migrants' Rights Network Mobile EU Citizens Project focuses on:

  • The contribution of EU citizen to politics and civil society in the UK
  • Are current structures and systems supportive of EU citizens wishing to participate in politics and civil society?
  • What will happen to existing political rights during and after Brexit?
  • What should happen to ensure that EU citizens do not lose their current legal, political and social rights?

Speakers include:

  • Sir Keir Starmer MP, Labour Shadow Brexit Secretary and MP for Holborn and St Pancras
  • Ms Fizza Qureshi, Director of the Migrants' Rights Network (confirmed)
  • Dr Nando Sigona, University of Birmingham (confirmed)
  • Representative of The Three Million (invited)
  • EU citizen local councillor (invited)
