EU law gives all those who hold the nationality of an EU Member State (EU citizens) the right to move and reside freely in other EU Member States (known as free movement). This briefing outlines the impact Brexit will have on free
movement for EU citizens currently living in the UK and UK citizens currently living in other EU Member States (i.e. citizens' rights). It includes a summary of the EU and UK's proposals as well as a number of case studies aimed at
highlighting some of the main issues for individuals.
