Episode 41: What does it mean (if anything) to be European?

What comes to mind when you think of being European? This is one of the questions that comes up time and again in our interviews for the Brexit Brits Abroad project. It probably doesn’t surprise you that there are range of different answers. In this episode, Michaela offers some insights into what it means to people—from rights and a set of common values to an identity and a sense of belonging—drawing from her interviews with Britons living in the EU-27.

And she speaks to Roger Casale, the founder of New Europeans, the civil organisation championing Freedom of Movement and EU citizenship, about Europe in the everyday, Freedom of Movement as a misnomer, and the prospects for a European citizenship not contingent on nationality.
