What does Brexit mean for the free movement of workers between the UK and the EU?
Discussion meeting with Lindsey Barras (Director at PricewaterhouseCoopers Legal), Jonathan Portes (Principal Research Fellow, National Institute of Economic and Social Research) and Klaus F. Zimmermann (Princeton University and UNU-MERIT).
Immigration was a major factor – if not the major factor – in the UK’s vote to leave the EU. The UK government is promising to take a tough stance on immigration in the negotiations. Meanwhile EU leaders are signalling that freedom of movement is non-negotiable and four central European countries are threatening to block any trade deal with the UK that would restrict the rights of their workers to live and work in the EU.
