Chapter 11: A radical departure: Migration and mobility between the UK and EU after Brexit

Brexit / BOOK
Jonathan Portes

Date: 17/06/2020

Jonathan Portes hones in on the lesser-discussed migration aspect of the negotiations on the future relations between the EU and UK. Until Brexit, migration across the Channel remained robust. However, the 2016 referendum marked the start in the UK’s disengagement from the EU, including in migration terms. The UK’s new immigration system for 2021 is set to accentuate this trend of decreasing migration. These changes will have significant economic and political consequences for the UK, which benefited hugely from migration from the EU.

This chapter is part of the publication Towards an ambitious, broad, deep and flexible EU-UK partnership?, which examines the political, economic, social and institutional implications of the UK’s departure from the EU in different policy fields, as well as its impact on UK politics and EU integration. The contributions in this book, all by leading experts on Brexit, draw from discussions held in the Brexit Think Tank Group, which was set up by the EPC in the aftermath of the 2016 referendum. Through this format, the EPC facilitated a continuing exchange between the European Commission’s Task Force for Relations with the United Kingdom and the policy community.
