EU Nationals in Scotland: Experiences, Needs and Support


The latest Migration Policy Scotland event hosts two expert panel discussions on the experiences and support needs of EU nationals in Scotland on 16 September. The first panel focuses on EU nationals’ needs for and access to support services in a post-Brexit era. It addresses matters including:

  • What are the current support and advice needs of EU nationals?
  • What services are available and accessible to them?
  • What would a landscape of good quality advice and support look like?

Our second panel assesses the impact of COVID on the lives and experiences of EU nationals. It considers questions such as:

  • How has the pandemic impacted public attitudes towards migrant workers?
  • Can the experiences of EU nationals during COVID shed light on the wider challenges they face?
  • What lessons can be learnt for the future?

Bringing together expertise from across the field of migration and public policy, this event examines the issues experienced by EU nationals in Scotland, in light of Brexit and the COVID pandemic. It provides information on the current needs of EU nationals, the support services available and where there is room for improvement.
