Brexit Brits Abroad: what does it mean (if anything) to be European?

What comes to mind when you think of being European? It probably doesn’t surprise you that there are range of different answers. In this episode, Michaela Benson offers some insights into what it means to people—from rights and a set of common values to an identity and a sense of belonging—drawing from her interviews with Britons living in the EU-27. Roger Casale, the founder of New Europeans, the civil organisation, championing Freedom of Movement and EU citizenship, talks about Europe in the everyday, Freedom of Movement as a misnomer, and the prospects for a European citizenship not contingent on nationality.
