Researching what Brexit means for British People of Colour living in the EU27

One of the central underpinnings of the project is to disturb taken-for-granted understandings of who the British who live in the EU27 are. Through our interviews in France and Spain and through the citizens’ panel we have recruited people at all stages in their lives, and in a variety of employment circumstances. However, it soon became apparent that to recruit British people of colour would require a more targeted approach. Chantelle Lewis, the project researcher, has been leading on this dimension of the research. The interviews follow a similar script to those we have conducted in France and Spain, but as her research shows, there are different emphases and concerns for these People of Colour.

These interviews are ongoing, but you can consult the initial analysis of this data in Chantelle’s archive on the webpage.
