Leaving the EU – the Impact on Human Rights

New Europeans, together with the European Association for the Defence of Human Rights (AEDH), Britain in Europe and Brunel University Knowing Our Rights project, are organising an event to look at the potential impact of the UK exiting the European Union on a number of areas of individuals’ rights.
The conference will examine areas of human rights under threat for EU citizens and UK citizens, covering issues associated with new arrangements for EU citizens living in the UK. We will also explore implications for others living in the UK where rights protected by EU legislation or instruments may be affected.
