Free of charge: please reserve your place below, or write to [email protected] stating your name and organisation.
The CSPP and Young European Movement Edinburgh, in collaboration with the European Parliament Office in Edinburgh, are pleased to welcome you to a discussion on the consequences of the vote to leave the European Union on European Nationals living in the United Kingdom.
Following the triggering of Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon, securing the fate of EU nationals living in the UK and of British nationals living in Europe has been a topic at the heart of the negotiations. Both communities currently enjoy rights granted by EU membership. The negotiations have brought these rights into question, throwing populations estimated at around 3 million (for EU nationals living in the UK) and 1,2 million (for UK nationals living in the EU) into a state of legal uncertainty.
Our aim is not to start a militant discussion on the pros and cons of Brexit. Rather, we will examine the implications of leaving the EU from a legal and practical standpoint, for those communities who will be most affected by the outcome of the June 2016 referendum. Join us for an informative and timely discussion on the impact of ‘Brexit’ on family, work, education, and identity, and hear from an expert panel.
Speakers will include Professor Richard Kerley, co-chair of the CSPP and Professor of Management at Queen Margaret University, who will chair this event, Joan McAlpine, MSP (SNP), Dr Laura Cram (University of Edinburgh) and Mark Lazarowicz, advocate (Terra Firma Chambers).
