Tales of migration: citizenship, benefits and identity in Brexit Britain

Invitation-only policy roundtable

Following the UK’s referendum on EU membership the control of migration from other EU countries has become critical to future policy. Public opinion has centred on issues of overstretched public services and increasing social welfare benefits. But little is known about EU migrants’ intentions after Brexit.

This roundtable delivers new research findings which help to answer these questions and more, giving new evidence upon which to form policies to meet Britain’s changing needs.
