Brexit happened in June 2016.

It is funded and supported by Brunel University, Institute of Communities and Society.

This study aims to hear about the experiences of Italians and British-Italians in the United Kingdom, particularly after Brexit and in matters concerning applications to obtain the Settled Status and/or British citizenship. 

Social, cultural, occupational, and financial perspectives are main topics of this research.

The participants have to match the following criteria:

  • An Italian and/or British-Italian ethnic background and/or citizenship/s (including a household/family unit including Italians and British-Italians as well as mixed nationalities/ethnic backgrounds)
  • You currently live or have been living in the UK for more than one continuous year at any one point from 2015 to the present.
