Workshop: Brexit, Citizens’ Rights and their Protection

DCU Brexit Institute and the European Parliament Representation Office in Dublin have jointly organised a workshop entitled ‘Brexit, Citizens’ Rights and their Protection’ which will examine specifically the issue of rights of EU citizens in the UK and the rights of UK citizens in the EU after withdrawal. This topic is one of the three main items in the withdrawal negotiations currently underway between the UK Government and the European Commission.

The event will be opened by a keynote speech by former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and will also feature the participation of leading policy makers and academics, such as Ciaran Burke (professor of International Law, University of Jena), Pieter Cleepe (Open Europe), Brenda Daly (Associate Professor of EU Employment Law, DCU) and Dimitry Kochenov (Professor of European Law, University of Groningen). The workshop will be closed by a debate between members of the European Parliament involved in the Brexit talks.
