Event description

Description

Join us in this House of Lords meeting hosted by Baroness Julie Smith of Newnham where we discuss the future direction of Europe post Brexit and the complex question of citizenship.

Although this event is free we do ask those who attend to take out a membership subscription that will entitle you to all our events for the next 12 months and allow you to also bring along a friend free.

There are three million Europeans from mainland Europe living in the UK and over a million Brits living in Europe. What citizen rights do they have and what will they after Brexit?

And many Britain’s want to keep their European citizenship once we leave the EU and members of the European Parliament are and have discussed possible associate citizenship.

So what will be the future of our citizenship and how will affect our right to move and vote? Will it mean that even after Brexit a new Europe will evolve with a still common identity and a bond of citizenship?

How will this impact on the institutions of the EU and of the UK and how will sovereignty be redefined in this fluid situation?

Was Brexit just the beginning of a debate about citizenship that crosses nation state boundaries or as some would like merely the end game?
