Open University law lecturer referenced in Brexit report

20 March 2017

The Exiting the EU Commons Select Committee has published its second report on the UK government's negotiating objectives, with a focus on the rights of UK and EU citizens.

The report, published in March 2017, analyses the government's position in relation to the protection of rights of non-UK and UK EU citizens during negotiations and after the withdrawal of the UK as an EU member state.

Open University law lecturer Anne Wesemann submitted evidence to the committee, outlining options for the government to consider. In addition, the committee referenced her work when discussing essential aspects for the government to consider in a reformed system. Particular reference was made in relation to a cut-off date being put in place for non-UK EU citizens taking residence and now living in the UK.

Wesemann's work discusses the issues around any cut-off date before the actual date the UK ceased to be an EU member state.
