Algorithmic Politics and Administrative Justice in the EU Settlement Scheme


The EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) was the policy framework and an administrative procedure introduced in line with the Withdrawal Agreement  to transfer EU, European Economic Area and Swiss residents and family members currently living in the UK into the UK’s immigration system.

This project approaches the EUSS as one example of a more widespread process of administrative reform in the post-Brexit context, and as intersecting with the digitalisation of administrative systems across government and the public sector in the UK and globally.

The research will contribute to understanding three aspects of changing practices of governance after Brexit: i). on the evolution of the UK’s relationship with the EU; ii)  a case study in digital decision-making in the public administration of immigration in the UK; iii) as a case study of the role of civil society organisations in shaping processes of redress.
