In the latest episode of the
Expat Focus podcast we’re talking about the way Brexit has altered
the lives of EU citizens - including Brits - who have chosen to
live in other member states.
Elena Remigi is one of them. As an Italian living
in the UK, the years since the 2016 Brexit vote have been filled
with uncertainty over whether she’ll be able to stay - or is even
still welcome - in the country she calls home.
Elena founded a project called ‘In Limbo’. It
started with a Facebook Group that she created for people to share
their Brexit experiences. And these personal accounts from EU
citizens in the UK were compiled for a book. That book - called
Limbo’ was quickly followed by a second, entitled ‘In Limbo

As the political stoush over a
Brexit agreement continues, and the 29th of March comes ever
closer, In Limbo is a reminder for all of us, of just how deeply
this issue is affecting people’s lives.
