Episode 16: About Brexit, belonging and Britishness among UK Citizens in France

In this episode, Michaela reflects on her research talking Brexit with UK citizens in France to turn attention onto questions of belonging. She focuses in particular on how Brexit has raised questions for them about their sense of themselves as British.
