Michaela Benson on what Brits abroad think of Brexit

Jul 26, 2017, 11:02 PM

What will become of Brits living abroad after Brexit? Helpless pawns in a political process or a wealthy expat colony insulated from sovereignty rows and trade deals? Dr Michaela Benson from Goldsmiths University of London is a leading figure in research on lifestyle migration and has been taking first-person accounts from those on the continent to assess the real picture. Recently back from France where she has been working on the Brexit Brits Abroad programme (brexitbritsabroad.com), Michaela joined Jen and Tim to explain the hopes, fears and what really matters to the 1.2million citizens resident in other European member states.
