Chantelle Lewis also joins the team as a researcher. Her role includes the examination of when and how UK citizens living abroad are represented and discussed in parliamentary proceedings. She will also be working to increase the representation of UK citizens of colour on our citizens’ panel.

Chantelle is a PhD candidate in the Sociology department at Goldsmiths, where she is researching mixedness in British monocultures. She is also the co-host of the Surviving Society Podcast—essential listening for anyone who wants to understand what sociology can offer to understanding contemporary issues.
