Our research findings in parliament

One of the ambitions of the research team is to communicate research outcomes to practitioners, civil society organisations and policy makers, among them, UK parliamentarians and civil servants. Research conducted for the project has informed the following reports of the House of Commons Exiting the EU Committee.

It also informs information about what the withdrawal agreement means for UK nationals living in the EU-27 contained in the progress of the negotiations report published by the UK government on 23rd July 2018.

Presenting our research in parliament (October 2017)

At the end of October 2017, Michaela and Katherine represented the project at an event organised to showcase all the projects supported by UK in a Changing Europe at the Parliamentary Office for Science and Technology.

Information about the research—its aims and objectives, our findings so far, key dates in the project calendar—was included in a booklet produced especially for the research (see image gallery on left) and they also prepared the postcard above to raise awareness of the key issues Brexit poses for UK citizens living in the EU27.
