Meet the project team

The BrExpats project team builds on the longstanding collaboration between Dr Michaela Benson and Professor Karen O’Reilly, leading scholars in the field of research on UK citizens who have made their homes and lives elsewhere in the EU. They have a combined total of 40 years experience conducting research with and writing about UK citizens who have made their homes and lives in France and Spain. 

This website has been produced as part of the research project BrExpats: freedom of movement, citizenship and Brexit in the lives of British citizens resident in the EU27. It is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (Grant Number ES/R000875/1) through the UK in a Changing Europe Initiative.
