In this long read, Michaela, Chantelle and Katherine reflect on what the debate about the overseas electors bill tells us about how UK citizens living overseas are understood and imagined by parliamentarians.
Read Dr Michaela Benson and Chantelle Lewis’ analysis of the Overseas Electors’ Bill 2017-2019. In this article for UK in a Changing Europe, they address what the vote for life means for British democracy and electoral representation.
In this long read blogpost, Chantelle reflects talking Brexit with UK citizens of colour who have made their homes and lives in the EU27, building on her ambition to highlight the diversity of this UK citizen population and revealing how these conversations prompt reflections on what it means to be British and how this intersects with processes of racialisation at home and abroad.
In Episode 18 of our podcast series, Michaela speaks with Chantelle Lewis about UK citizens of colour who have made their homes and lives in the EU27 and how Brexit for them intersects with longer personal histories of racism and exclusion.

In her contribution to our 12 days of Brexit Brits Abroad feature, Chantelle Lewis reflects on her initial conversations with Britons of colour who have made their homes and lives in the EU27. As she describes, their lives and migration challenge assumptions of the British who have made other European countries their homes. And as Brexit reframes the question of who is British along racial lines, they express their enhanced anxieties about where they belong.
