Download the transcript

Throughout the series, we have talked the sociology of Brexit and British citizens living in the EU-27. And today is no different. Focusing on the project, Michaela reflects on the challenges of doing research in a context where the rights and entitlements, the legal and political premises that underscore how the people at the heart of the research live their lives, are in flux.  With Chantelle Lewis asking the questions, Michaela reflects on the headline findings that are emerging from the project, and talks through our responsibilities as researchers and how this aligns with a critical sociological perspective. It explains the priorities of this sociological project on Brexit while also reflecting on what the project might offer to the way that we, as sociologists think about researching issues in real time and question who our research includes and excludes.
