EU Citizens' Rights Project
Public Policy Events has teamed up with a range of organisations in a project aimed at providing advice and information for EU citizens in Scotland.
There are more than 200,000 people in Scotland who are nationals of other EU member states. Many of them are concerned about what will happen after Brexit.
This project will provide basic advice and information for EU citizens in Scotland. We have produced an information factsheet, which is being produced in a number of European languages.
We've already held information days - public consultation and awareness events - in a number of cities in Scotland – Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.
These events featured expert speakers followed by a Question and Answer session.
The panel of speakers included legal, civic society, and EU policy experts. As well as the panel session, there are stalls, displays, and leaflets to take away from advice, information and local government agencies.
Our first event was held in Inverness on 14 April, and there's a brief report of the day here . Similar events were held in Edinburgh (28 April), Aberdeen (30 April) and Glasgow (Wednesday 2 May). All the events were free and open to the public, and each of them was very well attended both by EU nationals, and by others interested or concerned about the issues. We hope to run similar events elsewhere in Scotland shortly.
You can find out more about our future plans on this website, and also on twitter @CitzRights and our Facebook Page @EURightsProject.
The project is being run in association with New Europeans Scotland, Migrants Scotland, Edinburgh & Lothians Racial Equality Council, Polish Cultural Festival Association, and the Centre for Scottish Public Policy.
