Brexit Brits Abroad

By Dr Michaela benson

This is a podcast all about what Brexit means to and for British citizens living in the EU27. Hosted by Dr Michaela Benson, it focuses on Brexit as it takes place in the context of real lives, busting myths about this overlooked population, and engages with questions about migration, identity, citizenship and belonging (with a healthy dose of sociology for good measure).
