How has the Brexit vote affected EU migrants to the UK?
This book presents a female Polish perspective, using findings from research carried out with migrants interviewed before and after the Brexit vote – voices of real people who made their home in the UK. It looks at how migrants view Brexit and what it means for them, how their experiences compare pre- and post-Brexit vote, and their future plans, as well as considering the wider implications of the migrant experience in relation to precarity and the British paid labour market.
“This book could not be more timely. Eva Duda-Mikulin excellently captures the concerns of individuals during one of the most significant political moments in recent years. The book is a must-read for anyone with an interest in Brexit and its effects on EU workers.” Kamran Khan, Open University of Catalonia
