The EU Rights and Brexit Hub held its end of project conference on 9th June 2023, bringing together over 80 participants from across different sectors (including benefits advisers, campaign groups, legal practitioners, national and EU public bodies and academics). the Hub’s politics team. Professor Simon Parker, Dr John Evemy and Grace Cooper presented the findings of this stream of the project. Evidence from over 70 interviews with MPs, Peers, NGOs and other stakeholders and from analysis of parliamentary questions identified a direct link between the number of EU constituents and an indirect link through involvement in parliamentary and NGO networks to levels of MP engagement with EU+ citizens’ rights. But ultimately this research found a broken link between Home Office policy making and MPs.
