The EU Rights and Brexit Hub is the first of its kind: a nation-wide, legal action research hub. It is an interdisciplinary, inter-institutional, multi-method three-year project investigating how Brexit affects the social rights of EU/EEA nationals in the UK. It is funded by an ESRC large Governance After Brexit Grant.
The project brings together three key strands:
(i) A legal action research clinic, supporting organisations working with EU nationals in the UK, while producing a advice-led ethnography, documenting the cases that we encounter.
(ii) Political interviews with MPs and Peers; MEPs; NGOs and key governance stakeholders on problems faced by EU nationals accessing public services.
(iii) Analysing statistical data on variables that affect EU nationals’ access to public services.
Together these elements will form a rich analysis of the effects of Brexit upon EU nationals rights, and a national hub for evidence of EU nationals’ experiences when accessing their rights.We hope this national hub will be a European leader for legal action research and for socio-legal approaches to EU citizens’ rights.
