Report about research with Britons in Spain II

This is the second report from Karen O’Reilly‘s in-depth research with UK citizens who have made their homes and lives in Spain.

The report reflects on the similarities between leave and remain voters and highlights how Brexit taps into deeply emotional understandings of national identity and belonging. Karen also summarises what the draft withdrawal agreement says about citizens’ rights and what this means for UK citizens in Spain. As she shows, while current agreements permit some reassurance, people are still seeking information about how to continue their lives as before.
