Brexit and eYou: Information for EU/EEA Nationals – Briefing Paper Sept 2018

EU nationals articulate concerns about their future

The Institute for Conflict Research’s Brexit and eYou project is supporting EU/EEA nationals to engage with
decision-makers and to build their capacity to advocate for protection of their rights. The project aims to
articulate their concerns about Brexit’s potential impact on their economic and social rights, and to highlight
perspectives which could otherwise be overlooked at government and EU Commission level in the Brexit
negotiations.  This briefing paper is an update on ICR’s May 2018 paper. Six months before the UK leaves the EU,
despite the government’s assurances, there is still no information on many issues affecting the legal status
of EU nationals. At a meeting between EU nationals and MLAs in Stormont on June 13th, 2018 the following
topics were highlighted:
• Lack of detailed specific information or advice
• Concerns about residency
• Diminished sense of belonging
• Concerns around accessing work, healthcare and education.
