Research Briefing - Talking Citizens' Rights with UK citizens across the EU27

On 8th December 2017, the UK government and European Union negotiators announced that they had reached an agreement over citizens’ rights. This agreement contributed to the sense that sufficient progress on Phase 1 of the negotiations had been achieved, with the result that discussions have now moved towards trade. This has since been translated into the draft withdrawal agreement published 19th March 2018. In light of this agreement, we asked those participating in our research to register their thoughts on this progress through a short survey, asking them to rate the extent to which they felt that this agreement left them reassured.
