BREXIT – Possible Outcomes for Citizens [Updated 15/02/2019]

On 15 January 2019, the United Kingdom parliament voted overwhelmingly (by 432 votes to 202) against the withdrawal deal negotiated between the government and the EU. On 16 January the UK prime minister survived a no confidence vote. A debate and vote on the government’s “plan B”, and on amendments to it, was held on 29 January 2019, with no more clarity as a result.

While the article 50 process means that, as things stand, the UK will leave the EU on 29 March 2019, with or without a ratified deal, there are several ways that no-deal Brexit may be averted before then.

Here we look at possible outcomes for EU and British citizens, especially in the case of a no-deal Brexit.

BREXIT – The State of Play for Citizens’ Rights [UPDATED]

[This post has been updated to reflect the release of the UK government’s Statement of Intent on the EU Settlement Scheme on 21 June 2018.]

When it comes to Brexit, one of the EU27’s core negotiating principles, as set out in the European Council’s April 2017 negotiating guidelines, is that “nothing is agreed until everything is agreed”. As of now, there is no legally binding withdrawal agreement between the UK government and the EU27, and so any statements from either side are positions or proposals, subject to further negotiation.

Here we look at the UK government’s and the EU27’s policy positions on citizens’ rights today, and how they got to this point. We then suggest some actions that those affected should consider taking in light of these negotiating positions.
