Brexit Brits Abroad


Nov 1, 2019

Michaela is joined by Annette Schrauwen, Professor of European Integration at the University of Amsterdam (https://www.uva.nl/profiel/s/c/a.a.m.schrauwen/a.a.m.schrauwen.html?1572365609704), the co-author of the 2017 report commissioned by the City of Amsterdam outlining the possible routes for guaranteeing the future rights of British citizens living in the city (https://www.uva.nl/shared-content/subsites/amsterdam-centre-for-european-law-and-governance/en/news/2017/07/brexit-report-amsterdam). Annette explains what the Dutch authorities have been doing to secure the future rights of their British residents and the court cases raised by British citizens in the Netherlands relating to their loss of EU citizenship. She also draws attention to the ongoing case raised by a young British woman raised the Netherlands, currently living in the UK who was found ineligible for the right to Permanent Residence. As she and Michaela discuss, timing and contingency shape access to future rights for these British citizens, these legal cases making visible the limitations of a European Union citizenship derived from national citizenship.
