In the second instalment recorded at our event From Mobile Citizens to Migrants, the expert panel — Aliyyah Ahad (Migration Policy Institute), Michaela Benson (Goldsmiths), Nadine El-Enany (Birkbeck), Omar Khan (Runnymede Trust), and Nando Sigona (University of Birmingham) — consider previous transformations in the rights of non-citizen populations, and how these might inform our understandings about the transformation of citizens’ rights through Brexit. Part of the broader ambitions of the event to locate this contemporary transformation within the longer history and broader politics of migration and citizenship, we talk empire, race, geopolitical inequalities, and the hostile environment; how changes to such rights interplay with practices of settlement and acquisition of citizenship; and the prospects for leveling up rights for all migrant populations.
