This event is now fully booked.
EU27 citizens in the UK still face an uncertain future if Britain leaves the EU and British citizens still face being stripped of their EU citizenship.
At this conference we will take stock of the situation facing millions of citizens whose lives, hopes and aspirations are caught up in Brexit.
The panels will address the following issues followed by an audience Q&A:
- Will settled status end the uncertainty?
- How can the rights of Britons in Europe be protected?
- What will replace free movement in the future?
- How can trust be rebuilt in local communities and nationally?
- Will political participation be impacted by Brexit?
- What are the human rights implications of Brexit for citizens?
The formal session will be followed by a drinks reception from 6-7pm.
The conference will be co-chaired by:
Brendan Donnelly, Director of the Federal Trust
Jacqueline Minor, Former Head, UK Representation of the European Commission

Sue Ferns, Deputy Secretary General of Prospect
