Divorcing after over 40 years of marriage – even if a slightly difficult one, partly of interest, partly of necessity – is never easy. Freedom of movement has enabled millions of people to move from one country to another and with it have come friendships, relationships, new families being formed and children being born. Our research explores how Britain leaving the EU is affecting these families in the UK. Below a short talk on ‘EU families and ‘Eurochildren’ in Brexiting Britain‘ I gave to an event organised by the University of Birmingham for the ESRC Festival of Social Science . The project is funded by the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council and is part of The UK in a Changing Europe initiative.
