Citizen Brexit Observatory

The Citizen Brexit Observatory

The European Citizen Action Service, University of Sheffield School of Law and Law Centres Network
have joined forces to create the Citizen Brexit Observatory in order to support fair treatment of EU citizens
living in the UK, and UK citizens living in the other countries of the EU.

To safeguard and help enforce
EU Citizens’ Rights

What is the #BestBrexit4U? Join the discussion!

In partnership with the European Disability Forum, the EU Rights Clinic and New Europeans, ECAS has produced a comprehensive analysis of the impact of different Brexit scenarios on citizens´rights. We have set up a Facebook group to engage in a discussion with citizens like you about your concerns regarding Brexit and the rights you would like to see preserved in whichever deal is finally reached. We welcome all your comments at #BestBrexit4U. These will feed into a manifesto that will be presented to EU negotiators at a conference in Brussels in June 2017. We thank you in advance for your feedback!

The European Citizen Action Service (ECAS) is an international, Brussels-based non-profit organisation with a pan-European membership and 26 years of experience.
