ILPA Briefing Paper - Who will remain after Brexit? Ensuring protection for all persons resident under EU law

Briefing paper by Bernard Ryan, Professor of Migration Law, University of Leicester 5 December 2017 Summary This briefing paper addresses the possibility that some categories of person with EU free movement rights, and who have been resident in the United Kingdom, will be left without a right to reside in the United Kingdom after Brexit. Assuming that there is a withdrawal agreement which includes provision for “citizens’ rights”, it is likely that that will guarantee a right to remain to the large majority of such persons. This paper will however identify a number of gaps, concerning both EU citizens and third country nationals. It will indicate solutions that could be pursued, within the withdrawal agreement and at the United Kingdom level.
