British in France struggle as Brexit deepens inequality

The disproportionate impact of Brexit on British women and those in poor health living in France is revealed in new research from the director of the 'BrExpats' project, and Britain in Europe expert, Dr Michaela Benson.

Dr Michaela Benson’s interviews with more than 100 of the 150,000 British residents based in the country offer new insight into how Brexit is impacting British residents overseas.

The themes of uncertainty, insecurity and instability and the unevenness of the Brexit experience run through the study, as British citizens in France find themselves judged on their right to be there for the first time.

To find out more about the study, see here.

Dr Michaela Benson has been documenting the experiences of British people in Europe since 2017 as part of her @BrExpatsEU research project.
