Abstract or Description

This is a report documenting the key findings drawn from a short survey the BrExpats project team conducted with British citizens living in the EU27. The survey focused on how they felt about the agreements reached about citizens' rights, a primary concern of the Brexit negotiations.

Those responding to our short survey predominantly responded that they did not feel reassured by the current agreement on citizens’ rights;
Responses communicated:
• A lack of confidence that the United Kingdom would act in the interests of its overseas citizen population;
• Considerable mistrust directed at the UK Government, particularly around whether the agreement would be honoured beyond the date of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union;
• A high degree of misinformation and misunderstanding.
