“Uncertain Futures: How will Brexit impact refugees in the UK? A Panel Discussion,” part of LSE SU STAR Refugee Week 2019

With just weeks to go before the (current) Article 50 deadline for the UK's exiting the European Union, there are enormous uncertainties for the country - and Europe - as a whole. But what impact will Brexit have on refugees, an already vulnerable population navigating complex legal realms?

Join us for a panel discussion featuring Queen Mary University Professor Elspeth Guild, an expert in EU Law and migration; Dr. Eiko Thielemann, Associate Professor at the LSE and an expert on the European Union and on immigration; and Matthew Saltmarsh, a representative from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees as they discuss the particular uncertainties Brexit and the move away from common EU policies brings to refugees in the UK.
