Call for participants fo Oxford University Brexit Research

There have been a number of transformations to citizenship during the past thirty years; citizenship  has  seemingly moved away from its traditional concept, tied to the emergence of nation states, with the advent of new forms of citizenship such as supra-national citizenship, dual citizenship and the idea of ‘global citizenship’. Furthermore there has also been much discussion on what it actually means to be a citizen and what counts as ‘acts of citizenship’.  Brexit has raised a number of potential issues surrounding citizenship. British citizens will likely lose their EU citizenship as a result of the Brexit vote, this probability is significantly controversial considering 48% of people voted to remain in the EU and essentially retain their EU citizenship. The vote also means the non-British EU citizens are at risk of losing their rights to live and work in Britain as the extent of their EU citizenship is scaled-back to exclude Britain.
