How has Brexit redrawn the boundaries of membership in the UK? Is the radical potential of ‘free movement’ completely lost because of Brexit? I spoke to Adrian Favell, Professor of Sociology and Social Theory at the University of Leeds, about the impact of Brexit on northern towns and small cities, the politics of immigration during the Brexit referendum, and how the end of freedom of movement doesn’t mean less immigration, but immigration with less rights and protections. The conversation is divided in two parts.
